Student Presenter Checklist
Please check in at Presenter Registration kiosks between 8:30am and 9:30am. Make note of your Abstract Number and don’t forget your poster! On your name tag, you will find your Poster Location. You should have your presentation mounted by 9:45am, and the Expo opens at 10:00am.
Please note that an individual from your group should be present at the poster at all times. Judges will be making their way around the floor to introduce themselves and hear your RISE Pitch.
Business attire is required. Your interaction with the RISE judges and industry attendees will mimic future interactions with venture capitalists, grant managers and government officials. Use this experience as a learning process for your future success.
At 1:45pm, the finalists will be posted on the monitors next to the podium in Cabot, as well as notified by email. Please check the monitors/email to see if you are a finalist! At least one representative from your team will need to be present at the REACH Awards Reception to accept an award should you receive one.
All posters are to remain on display for the full four hours of RISE:2016. All posters must be removed by 2:00pm. The boards will be dismantled at 2:10pm. We are not responsible for posters not removed by that time.
