Interdisciplinary Forum

The 22nd Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015.

Share your research and creativity

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum showcases graduate student research and creative works through oral, poster and performance presentations.  These presentations are designed for a mixed audience so jargon is minimized and explanations are clear.

Presentation categories

You can present your research though an oral presentation, a visual poster or a performance.

Oral presentations

You will have 12 minutes to present followed by 3 minutes for audience questions.  Please load your presentations on the room computer prior to the hour in which you present.

Poster presentations

Your poster will be hung from 8:00 - 12:00 and you will be assigned 1 hour to stand with it.

Performances

You will have 15 minutes to perform. If your piece is static, consider entering the poster division.

Awards

Awards for outstanding presentations are given in the three presentation divisions. Also, the award winners for Outstanding Graduate Assistants, Graduate Mentor and Graduate Faculty are announced at the forum.  This ceremony will start shortly after noon (in the PSU theater,) and will last about an hour.  In addition to awards, it will include entertainment from the College of Arts and Letters, and welcome messages from our President and our Provost.
