Poster dimensions should be no larger than 4’x4’ (four feet wide by four feet high). Posters may be smaller, but not larger due to the poster holders.

The poster session will be over the lunch hour. Posters may be set up during check-in.

Poster presenters may be asked to record a one minute spiel about their poster for archival purposes. The recording may be done during the conference or after, time depending.

Bring business cards! Stick them in the poster holder, around the edges of your poster.

Call for Posters

The Research Reproducibility Conference will bring together researchers, students, and administrators for a frank discussion on how to build research integrity through reproducibility. We hope to further the dialog around open science, open data, transparency, and good research practices.

The conference will be held June 15, 2018 at The University of Utah S. J. Quinney College of Law and is free for students.

The poster session will showcase cutting-edge research and works-in-progress in pursuit of making research reproducible. Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students and new researchers, to obtain interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from conference attendees. We strongly encourage student and industry submissions.

A committee of faculty and librarians will review all proposals. Accepted poster abstracts will be published on the conference website. Authors of accepted posters are expected to be present during the scheduled poster session. Posters from the 2016 Research Reproducibility Conference are here.
