Creating an Academic Poster

For presentation events with URSCA, students are asked to make an academic poster to have on display. Academic posters are used for presenters to visually present a summary of their research, scholarly, or creative project.

URSCA offers poster workshops throughout the year to assist with creating your poster in a way that highlights the context of your work while being visually engaging to the audience.

Student Travel Support

If accepted to present, some travel assistance may be available for students to present their work at professional meetings and conferences.

Contact the URSCA office for more information.

Resources for Writing an Abstract

An abstract is a concise and powerful statement that summarize a larger work. Having an abstract allows readers to quickly get an understanding of your work without having to read its entirety. When submitting to present or publish your research or project, an abstract of your work is often requested. If you are unsure of how to construct an abstract, we provide opportunities to educate and assist. Several times throughout the year, the URSCA office, in partnership with the Writing Center hosts abstract writing workshops.

If at any time you need additional help, the UW-Superior Writing Center is a free resource to students and can assist with writing an abstract in any discipline.
