Oral Presentations

Presenters selecting “oral presentation” as their preferred format will be placed in a panel with three to five other presentations. Each 90-minute presentation session will be assembled around an academic discipline or inter-disciplinary theme based on the abstract submission, with 12 to 15 minutes per presentation.  

Presenters will receive confirmation of their panel group and presentation time prior to the symposium. Panel sessions will be moderated by University of Oregon faculty or staff. 

Each presenter or presenting group should be prepared to: 

  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to their assigned panel time
  • Present 12 to 15 minutes of content, with 3-5 minutes for audience questions and discussion
    • Individual presenters, as well as co-presenting groups will be allotted 12 to 15 minutes total
  • Attend for the entire 90-minute panel session, with 10 minutes for general discussion after all panelists have presented.

Attend a Symposium Preparation Workshop

Affiliated Students of Undergraduate Research Engagement (ASURE) and the Oregon Undergraduate Research Journal (OURJ) will hold a joint workshop: "The Art of Designing an Impactful Symposium Presentation" on April 16 and 23 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the EMU Miller Room #107.
