The goal of the virtual Student Academic Conference is to recreate the pre-Covid experience in the CMU as much as possible.

Each poster presentation will have a Zoom link, interested audience members will click on it and visit a presentation. When someone enters the Zoom room, presenters should be able to provide a short overview of the project and answer questions a visitor might have. Students should share their screen with their poster.  Students should be available in their room for the duration of their session.

Oral presentations will be assigned a Zoom room. A moderator will be the host and will introduce presenters and keep time. With some exceptions, presenters will have 20 minutes to present and answer audience question. Presenters should be able to share slides to aid their presentation.
