Poster Information

UROP will print all posters in bulk this year. For this reason, the deadline is not flexible. Students who cannot make the deadline are responsible for their own poster printing and payment.

Poster Dimensions: 32” x 40”

Joint Posters: We do not allow more than two students to collaborate on one poster. MRADS (formerly MRC) and UROP students can collaborate on a poster but will have to print them separately for the two Symposia.

If your student needs resources or assistance with their research poster, please direct your student to the 'Poster Resources' page here.
