Can I present research I did with a faculty/funds not from RIT?
Yes. You are welcome to apply if you are a RIT undergraduate, regardless of where you actually performed your research. If you did your research project at another institution, you will need to get the abstract approved by the faculty mentor you worked with there.
Probably. If you want to show a prototype or other physical
objects, please tell us--when you submit your abstract--what you
want to do and what your space requirements will be using the
"Additional Comments & Special Requests" box on the Submission
After confirming space availability, your request may be approved and then we'll ' you the logistics for setting up.
Can I run Simulations or Software Demonstrations?
The best approach would be to use Jing to record a movie of your program running (free). Jing will automagically post the movie to the web and you can show it during your presentation that way. If you MUST run special software, bring your own laptop and test it in at least a day in advance with a projector.
You can do this in the Innovation Center if you like. Schedule your dry run by emailing Teresa Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org
