Student Poster Competition

The 2019 Tran-SET Annual Conference will host a Student Poster Competition. To participate, please submit an Abstract (maximum 350 words) in accordance with the transportation topics listed above.

Abstracts (and posters) from national and international participants are welcomed.

The abstracts must follow the following format. Please e-mail your abstracts directly to transet@lsu.edu by November, 2018. Please follow the instructions below to prepare your poster:

  • Register for the conference (https://transet.lsu.edu/2019-conference/register/).
  • Prepare, print, and bring to the conference a single sheet poster made of heavyweight poster paper or similar material, approximately 4 ft. x 8 ft. in size.
  • Bring heavy duty fasteners or tacks as back up to the thumbtacks. Bring tape or other materials as determined necessary.
  • Authors may bring additional written material of a non-commercial nature that supplements the material presented on the poster.
  • Keep content SIMPLE. A poster is a visual communication tool, not a manuscript. The viewer should be able to easily identify the primary concepts of the project without wading through a lot of text or complex formulas. Identify 3 or 4 main points or concepts to communicate.
  • Use at least 28–36 point bold sans serif font (e.g., Arial or Helvetica) for headers and 18–24 point font for text.
  • Provide author name(s), organization logos and/or other acknowledgements to give credit to those who have done the work
  • Prepare a brief (up to 5 minutes) oral presentation for delivering to small audiences gathered around the poster.
