Student Water Conference

SWC overview

The Oklahoma Water Resources Center will host the 2017 Annual Student Water Conference on March 23-24, 2017 on the Stillwater campus of Oklahoma State University.

About the Conference: The conference consists entirely of student presentations to be judged by a panel of faculty members for providing constructive feedback to students in regard to their research presentation skills. Student activities promote interaction among students of all disciplines. The conference includes two major lectures from outside speakers. All SWC activities take place in the French Lounge, SU 270.

Oral Presentation Guidelines: Oral presentations should be made with PowerPoint. A computer and projector will be provided. You may either bring your presentation on a flash drive or e-mail to water@okstate.edu before the conference. Please ensure that your presentation length is approximately 12 minutes. You will be allowed 2-3 minutes for questions after your presentation.

Poster Presentation Guidelines: We will provide easels and poster boards (3 ft by 4 ft) for mounting your posters. You will be required to print your own posters and bring them to the conference.
