Special Instructions for UURAF 2023 Performance Presentations

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

Performance Presentations

Performance demonstrations allow students to present their scholarship through the production or performance of artistic work such as dance, music, or theater. Every reasonable effort will be made to preserve the integrity of each performance.

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 presentation for the judge and audience to ask questions. An additional 5 minutes is allotted for change over between presenters.

The following equipment may be available to students participating in-person: small stage area, laptop with at least one USB port and speakers. A digital piano will be available, if required. 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. The use of paint, glitter, crepe paper, confetti, and other similar materials is also not permitted during in-person presentations.
