Deadlines & Schedule

Ways to Participate - Deadlines & SChedules

Students are invited to participate in the judged Lightning Talk competition; the non-judged poster session; or enjoy the event as an attendee:

  1. Judged Lightning Talk Competition - This 90-second presentation requires students to communicate their research confidently and concisely to a general audience using one PowerPoint slide (some members of the audience may have expertise in the subject matter, others may not). Cash prizes will be awarded to top presenters. Read more about the Lightning Talk competition.
  2. Non-judged Poster Session & Reception - The Poster Session provides a more casual way for students to share their research with peers, faculty, and members of the larger UML community (i.e., alumni, community members, industry experts). This session will take place during the reception. While there will not be a formal judging process, there will be "fan favorite" voting along with prizes for those posters garnering the most votes. Read more about Poster Session.

Event Schedule (Tentative)

The symposium will kick off at 2 p.m. with the Lightning Talk competition. Each college will have winners announced for the best oral presentation - at least one winner for each college, but it could be more based on the number of submissions per college. The Poster Session/Reception will be held from 4-6 p.m.

The symposium is a showcase of the finest scholarly and creative work on campus, and as such, should be regarded as a professional commitment. Student participants must be available to present their Lightning Talk and for those participating in the Poster Session, must be present (or have a team member present) for the entire poster session/reception.
