  • Prepare a Professional Poster Presentation for the Exposium. The dimensions for a poster presentation are ordinarily 36 x 48 inches. In most cases, students will work with their faculty sponsor and/or department to prepare and print the final poster presentation. If a student is unable to print posters within their department, the w.indstate.edu/cirt/"> Multimedia Design and Research Programming Services (MDRPS) is able to print 36 x 48 “matte”-quality posters. The costs of these posters will be covered by CSRC. Posters printed at other dimensions or laminated must be paid for by the home academic department through an intramural voucher. All posters must be submitted to MDRPS by the faculty sponsor in final print format (usually as a single PPT slide with the dimensions 36 x 48) to MDRPS no later than noon Monday, March 27, 2017. Please note, students cannot submit their own posters — only the faculty sponsor can. Please contact MDRPST at  812-237-2675 for more information on printing.
