Poster Presentations

We invite proposals for poster presentations in any area. Proposals
should explicate the researched topic.
Author/s are encouraged, but not required to explain how their research

disciplines are:

Poster presentations are frequently utilized in the sciences to
effectively convey research and data.
Presenters are asked to visually represent their findings and conclusion
on a poster in a designated space. Standing or sitting by the poster,
researchers are able to interact with interested scientists about their
work. While this form of presentation is new in the study of literature,
composition/rhetoric and linguistics, the Program Committee believes
this method will create new opportunities for discussions about
literature and language, and may spark innovative ways of thinking about
the field.

Presenters will be required to be present for a designated two-hour
period during the poster session.
Computer display equipment and other technology, if used, must be
provided by the participant.

Presenters must bring their own push-pins or Velcro to affix the poster
material to the display board. All materials must be removable. Writing,
painting or using paste on the display board is not allowed.

All posters must be set up in the time allotted before the session and
remain up until the end of the session.

Proposals should be 250 words.
