AIMHO Poster Session Information
Share |

Are you involved in development or research for your university or graduate program?


Share that information in the poster session at the AIMHO Conference


What is a Poster Session?

In alignment with AIMHO’s Strategic Plan, we will be offering an opportunity for you to share your research or best practices in form of a Poster Session.  A Poster Session showcases research and/or institution programs. Unlike a general interest session, a Poster Session allows viewers to study and restudy your information and discuss it with you one-on-one.  The Poster Session will take place in area outside of the Corporate Partner Fair and presenters will be asked to be at their poster during the Corporate Partner fair times.  The Poster Session will be judged.

 Some of the subjects at the 2013 Conference were:

  • The Cycle of Assessment      
  • A New Frame for Understanding LLC Success      
  • From Foster Care to College: The Role of Student Affairs Practitioners in Addressing the Challenges that Foster Youth Face in Accessing Higher Education         
  • Gender Inclusive Housing
  • A business transaction:  An analysis of University Housing Private-Public Partnerships using the balanced scorecard

Some ideas for the 2014 Conference:

  • Housing/Programs for International students
  • Models & approaches for Hall Programming & Community Building -- Best Practices
  • Best practices in Housing, Dining, etc.
  • New construction & renovation
  • Academic initiatives & partnerships
  • Crisis/Critical incident planning & response
  • Administrative Leadership topics
  • Budget planning
  • State & Federal regulations, mandates, & policies -- what is their impact

 When is the Poster Session?

·        The Poster Session takes place during the Corporate Partner Fair exhibit.

This is a judged competition.

Judges from universities within the region will be adjudicating the poster presentations during the session. There will be one Judges Choice winner and they will be announced at the closing banquet.

In addition Conference Attendees will have the chance to vote on a "Peoples Choice" winner. Everyone will have a chance to participate in this opportunity.

Successful posters provide brief statements of introduction, statement of the problem, review of related literature and implications of the literature.  Ask yourself, "What would I need to know if I were viewing this material for the first time?" and then state that information clearly. Keep it simple. Place major points in the poster and save nonessential but interesting sidelights for informal discussion.  Be selective. Your final conclusions or summary should leave observers focused on a concise statement of your most important findings and recommendations. Successful poster presentations have concise abstracts (150-250 words) and achieve both coverage and clarity:

Coverage: Have you provided all the obvious information? Will a casual observer walk away understanding your major findings after a quick perusal of your material? Will a more careful reader learn enough to ask informed questions?

Clarity: (i.e. Is the sequence of information evident? Indicate the ordering of your material with numbers, letters, or arrows, when necessary. Is the content communicated clearly?

A/V Accommodations

You will be able to select to either do a paper Poster Session where we would provide you the easel for your poster or you could do an electronic poster session where we would provide you a display table for your laptop.  If you choose to do an electronic session, please have your laptop charged as there may or may not be electricity available in the area.

The Poster Submission Session Will Be Available Soon!
