Special Instructions for UURAF 2023 Film and Exhibit Presentations

UURAF 2023 will be a hybrid event consisting of oral, poster, performance, film and exhibit presentations. UURAF is a public event. Do not share confidential information in your abstract or presentation.  

Film and Exhibit demonstrations allow students to present their scholarship through the production of artistic work such as documentary films, multi-media, art exhibits, photography, and similar products. Every reasonable effort will be made to preserve the integrity of each film or exhibit.

The time and location of presentations will be sent to the coordinating presenter well in advance of the event. There will be a 3-5 minute discussion period following each in-person presentation for the judge and audience to ask questions. An additional 5 minutes is allotted for change over between presenters. Virtual presenters for virtual can expect to interact with judges and visitors through the chat function and facilitated discussion sessions on the event platform Symposium by ForagerOne. Please respond promptly to questions.

The following equipment may be available to students participating in-person: small stage area, laptop with at least one USB port and speakers. Due to time constraints, students may not use their own computers. Please note: The Breslin Center does not permit affixing anything to the walls, floors, doors, door frames, staging, stage curtains, draperies or ceilings with nails, staples, tape or any other substance.
