Soapbox Talks

Students who are presenting a poster have the option to give a scheduled 3-5 minute oral presentation. Soapbox talks will be given in Theatre 2 with the poster as a single presentation slide projected on the screen. If you would like to deliver one of these “Soapbox Talks”, please indicate this when you submit your abstract. Note that talk slots fill up fast and are allotted on a first come first served basis. Students must deliver a Soapbox Talk to be eligible for the NAPEG student award for best poster. Soapbox talks are restricted to student poster presenters. 

Contact the Poster Chair with questions about your poster.
