UNDERGRADUATE POSTER PRESENTATIONS
AT THE WPSA 2023 MEETING
Undergraduate students are invited to present posters on research they
are conducting under the supervision of their Political Science faculty
advisors. Any topic appropriate to the political science discipline -
broadly conceived - is welcome. Please submit your request to participate
form by the deadline of October 30, 2022. The form may be found here:
Complete the form noting you are an undergraduate student, submitting
your poster as a single paper presentation, completing a brief description
of your project and submitting it to Section 26, Undergraduate Poster
Session. If you have any questions, please contact Julio Castilleja at
Students will be available at their poster or display during their assigned
session time on Friday, April 7, 2023, in a place to be assigned in the
Hyatt Hotel at the Embarcadero Center to discuss their research with conference
participants. It is recommended that students prepare and practice a 3-5
minute summary about their project.
Dimensions of Posters:
Maximum size of poster should not exceed 48 x 36 inches to fit on TRI-FOLD
48 X 36 inch poster board on an easel. The tri-fold is 12", 24"
Pushpins will be provided for affixing all poster materials to display
boards. Mounting on foamcore is NOT recommended; if you have such a poster,
you will need extra long pins (greater than 1 inch) to affix your poster.
NOTE: You may prepare a tri-fold cardboard poster if
you are specifically directed to do so by your advisor.
Printing of Posters: Posters can be printed at your home
university and transported to the conference; or, you should look into
identifying a Kinko's in or near the hotel to print your poster once you
arrive. Your home university may give you access to inexpensive poster-printing
facilities and suggest you investigate this printing option. If you decide
to print at the conference, we recommend that you check the costs of this
kind of printing because they can be expensive at commercial outlets.
Poster Design: Consider talking with your university
media center or faculty advisor about techniques for poster design.
