Student Research Day

To participate in Student Research Day, students must submit an abstract, which describes the general theme of the presentation, and when relevant, the methods and results.  Please review the following descriptions of the types of presentations available and view previous student abstracts for examples of successful submissions.  Any undergraduate student who is currently enrolled for a minimum of six credit hours during the 2017/2018 academic year at Indiana University East is eligible to submit an abstract.

Types of Presentations

  • Oral Presentation:  Oral presentations provide a forum in which authors can present research results to a large audience of peers.  Participants will be notified of the time and place for the presentations after the acceptance of their proposals. The presentations should be 7 minutes long.
  • Poster Presentation:  Poster presentations will be made to members of the campus community attending the event. Poster presentations are an effective forum for the exchange of information and a means to communicate research.  Participants will be notified of the time and place for the presentations. Students will receive more information about size restrictions for the posters in their confirmation email. Students may visit the following links for help with creating a poster presentation:,
  • Distance Presentation:  Distance presentations will be made to a field of peers, faculty, and guests attending the event using Adobe Connect, Skype, or other compatible software.  Presentations can be made either live or in a pre-recorded format.  Participants will be contacted regarding the format and timing of their presentation after the acceptance of their proposals. Other options may be available for presenting at a distance.
