What is a poster presentation?
A poster presentation is a visual presentation representing the students' work. The conference will provide a poster board for hanging the poster presentation, which can be as simple as PowerPoint slides. Posters will be displayed in the conference Exhibit Hall, allowing all attendees to see the students' work.

What topics should the poster presentation address?
The work being presented must be new and current research and development in the field of performance improvement through process capability. Work being done in conjunction with a professor is permitted. See topics of interest.

What do I submit?
Students will be required to submit a short 50- to 75-word abstract and three learner outcomes that attendees are expected to gain from the presentation. You will be asked to choose a topic into which your work fits, as well as the target audience level (getting started, intermediate, or advanced).

How do I submit my work?
Visit this website. When you log in, click on the link for Student Poster Submission. You will need to create an account and then will be prompted to submit your work.

What are the selection criteria?
The Program Committee will be reviewing submissions based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the field of performance improvement through process capability.

Do I need to stay with my poster if accepted?

If my poster is accepted, what guidelines should I follow to create my presentation?
See the Poster Session Guidelines at the bottom of this page.

If my poster is accepted, what hotel should I stay at?
If your poster is accepted and you will be attending the conference, you should reserve a room at one of the four official conference hotels, each close to the convention center. Discounted group rates are available at each of the four hotels. You will need to make your reservations through the online reservation system, as reservations must be made through this online system in order to get the discounted rate.
