The Expo is coming up! The full schedule may be viewed (and a .pdf downloaded) here.
Presenters: For oral sessions: remember that your Powerpoint presentations are due by 4:00pm Monday, 25 March. Small files (under 22mb) may be emailed to UMaineGradExpoSubmit@gmail.com. Larger files must be burned to CD or DVD and dropped-off at the Graduate School office in Stodder Hall. All presentations should be PC-compatible. For poster sessions: we would like to have posters dropped-off at the Graduate School on the Monday-Wednesday leading up to the Expo (25-27 March). If you absolutely cannot get your poster to the Graduate School during that period, you will be responsible for getting it posted before the beginning of your session.
Also, we would like to announce to presenters and visitors that we have added an additional prize. Every visitor to the Expo will be able to sign-in and receive a ballot. Everyone may vote for their favorite presenter. The overall top vote-getter will receive the “Peoples Choice Award” and a cash prize in addition to any awards presented by the judges.
On behalf of the University of Maine Graduate Student Government, I am pleased to invite you to the 2013 UMaine Graduate Student Exposition. Over the course of two days – 28-29 March, 2013 – graduate students from all disciplines are invited to present their research, artistic works, projects and collaborations. In addition to competing for thousands of dollars in cash prizes and recognition for their work, students will be able to interact with representatives from industry and government.
As in years past, the GradExpo will feature disciplinary sessions with poster and oral presentations featuring students in the Physical Sciences & Technology, Natural Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences. Artists at the University will be presenting InterMedia art projects, fine art works and performances. The PechaKucha competition session challenges students from every discipline to share their work in a rapid-fire slide show lasting under seven minutes.
We are excited to announce that several new interdisciplinary sessions have been added to the GradExpo this year, including sessions on Canadian Studies and The Gulf of Maine. We are also going to feature the winners of the Graduate Life Photo Contest. In addition to the new sessions, we are additionally pleased to be hosting the event in a new venue. GradExpo 2013 will take place in the new Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center, and will feature an open house to mark the recent completion of this wonderful facility.
In addition to the academic and artistic exposition we are planning some feature presentations and activities that will appeal to the graduate community and highlight our avocations. We will also be addressed by some of Maine’s community leaders.
