2019 Symposium Registration

Registration for the 2019 Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium is available in Porches on the Stander Symposium tab. The deadline to register projects is Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

Information you will need to register

  • Advisor(s) name(s)
  • Co-Presenters names if you are part of a group
  • Poster / Presentation Title
  • Abstract (Your abstract should be no longer than 300 words)

*If you plan on attending (but not presenting at) the Stander Symposium, you do not need to register. 

Project Formats

Porch Project: Share your "project" (research, dialogue, etc.) and engage your peers on your front porch. Don't have a porch? We'll help you adopt one. Each "presentation" is 10-15 minutes in length and the living room is your rain site. You are the host of this informal salon style gathering to show and share what you're learning or making, and engage your "guests" through conversation. Creativity is the key in this venue. The Stander coordinator will work with you and your faculty advisor for this session on seating and other logistics. Students registered for a Porch Project will have to attend a short workshop to get tips and best practices about the format.

Powered by PechaKucha: PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. All PK's will be held in Science Center Auditorium. Students registered for a PK will have to attend a short workshop to get tips and best practices about the format. Watch a PechaKucha >>

Poster Presentations: On the day of the Symposium you will be given a 48” (length) x 36” (height) presentation board and push pins. Presenters should remain by their poster for the duration of the session to discuss their work.

Oral Presentations: Each student is given a 20 minute time slot for their presentation. This allows 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. For group projects, please indicate how many 20 minute time slots you require. Save your presentation to a flash drive for easy transfer.

Panel Discussion: A panel is a group of 3-4 presenters (or more) with a moderator on a shared topic and represent a variety of perspectives. Panels work best when the presenters interact with one another and the audience, and organized around a series of questions.

Visual Arts Displays and Performances: Displays can be either physical or digital, and performances can be live or on video. Consider including a brief discussion by the presenters to engage the audience. After you have registered, you will be contacted to discuss your specific space and equipment requirements.

Other Presentation Formats (i.e. competitions, forums, interactive sessions, workshops, etc.) should be proposed to the Stander Coordinator as soon as possible.
