ePoster Presentation

A novel concept was introduced in 2014 -- the Electronic Poster, or ePoster. An ePoster utilizes a large monitor and computer to display multimedia versions of a poster. It gives an opportunity for a computer savvy presenter in the poster session to more effectively convey information that would not necessarily be possible with a traditional printed poster. It also enhances visualization to attract interest of attendees. This method of presentation may change the way conferences conduct poster sessions in the future.

Schedule for 2015 Research Days:

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Judging will take place in the Commons all day. Each participant will be assigned a 2-hour slot.

Friday, April 24, 2015

Electronic posters will be on display in the Commons for the College of Dentistry and College of Nursing community from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Distinguished Scientist Lecture, Nagle Lecture Hall at 1:00 pm.

NYUCD Annual Student Research Days Guidelines

Presenters are asked to submit an e-mail to stating your intent to submit an abstract as early as possible. This informal e-mail should include your name, the proposed title and authors of your poster, your department and level (ie, PG-Ortho, DDS, Nursing RN, Nursing PhD, DDS Honors, International Program), and the name of your faculty mentor. This will assist in the timely preparation of the Research Program.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically at:, by the deadline, with a copy of the abstract and title via e-mail to Please be concise but thorough. Abstracts will be reprinted in a program book. Early submission is appreciated.

The presenting author should be a student, should be named first, and will be the only author considered for an award.

Once you have submitted your abstract, an ePoster template will be forwarded to you. You must use the authorized template to submit your poster for Research Day. Note:  You must be presenting to qualify for travel support to external meetings if more than one student authors the poster.

ePosters are intended to provide a display of information that is not possible with a traditional printed poster. Embedding multimedia content, along with static elements, such as titles, logos, and summaries, would be a good way to convey information. Examples of dynamic visual elements include videos, slide shows, animated charts or graphs, scrolling text, or 3D rotation of a model.

Do not intend it as an oral presentation.

The intention of an ePoster does not include attracting visitors to stay for a long oral, video, or slideshow presentation. Display elements can either loop for a minute or less, or be activated and controlled by the poster presenter on command. Remember, you are to interact with those who are interested in your ePoster, not give a presentation to an audience.

Do not use a webpage that can already be accessed via Internet.

ePosters are meant to present new information. The attendees will benefit from interacting with you, not viewing a website that he or she can access without going to the conference. But this does not mean you can’t use HTML, CSS, Java, Flash, etc. for your presentation.

No audio allowed -- No internet access provided.

Only ONE presenter per poster will be considered for an award. If more than one student authors the presentation, the student named first should be present for the judging. Monetary awards may be divided amongst student authors. Note: Travel support to external meetings is limited to the single presenting student per poster.
