Adelphi University Research Conference


Conference Information for Students

Engage in academic research and scholarly exploration.

This conference celebrates the efforts of students and their mentors/advisers and offers students a unique opportunity to share their work with fellow members of the Adelphi academic community. 

Who can present at the conference?

Undergraduate and Graduate students may present posters, oral presentations (accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation), and other creative works appropriate to the discipline, such as sculpture, paintings, graphics, poetry, and the like.

What can I present?

Our research conferences are designed to highlight the broad scope and outstanding caliber of student research from every school and discipline. Students are invited to submit their research relating to class projects, independent studies, seminars, or research assistantships. Presentation of works-in-progress is acceptable and encouraged.

You can present your research in the form of a digital poster (ePoster) or oral presentation (typically accompanied with a powerpoint presentation. See guidelines below for both presentation formats.)

What are the guidelines for Special Presentation Options? 

Literature. You can prepare a 10 minute reading based on your original work including poetry, short stories, plays, etc. 

Will I be excused from classes?

Although typically classes are not held on Research Day, please talk to your professors as soon as possible to let them know that you are interested in presenting on Research Day.

How do I submit my abstract and what is the deadline?

The deadline for abstract submission is February 21, 2020, at 11:59 p.m.

What are the guidelines for ePosters?

Adelphi is eliminating paper-waste and cost by adopting FREE digital poster presentations with ePosterBoards®. Presentations will be displayed on high definition, flat panel screens during the poster session.

Traditional paper posters will not be accepted. ePosters give you the flexibility to have several slides of content (rather than just one), the ability to embed videos and animations, as well as the freedom to work on your poster until the last minute. After your abstract is accepted, you will be required to submit an electronic version of your poster approximately 1 week before the conference day. You will be notified when and how to submit it.

Deadline for submission of eposters online: Friday, April 9, 2019 through the eposter portal. We strongly encourage you to submit your powerpoint online by the deadline date.

What are the guidelines for The Computer Science and Game Development Exhibition?

The Computer Science and Game Development Exhibition will highlight student work in these areas that is generally interactive and will be more suitable for hands-on demonstrations rather than poster or slide-based presentations. In addition to a description of your work, please include a list of the technology that will be used to present your work, and whether you will be bringing this technology yourself or if you need some equipment provided on your behalf.

What are the guidelines for DataBiltz?

The DataBlitz (aka lighting talk) is a new format in the frame of the AURC. They idea behind the format is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to present their work to an audience in a very concise manner. As a result the audience will hear reports very different topics in a relative short time frame. The nature of this format requires the presenter to make a:

  1. very short introduction, which also allows people from other disciplines to understand the basics behind the project
  2. clear and focused presentation of the results/outcome of the project
  3. short summary of the work with an emphasis on their impact of the respective field

All of this has to be done in a framework of only three minutes (plus two minutes of discussion).

While PowerPoint can be used, it is not necessary for a presentation.
