In order for any student to present in the Research and Creative Works Conference, they are REQUIRED to follow the standards mentioned below. If a student fails to do so, they may be asked to leave the conference and return when these standards are met, otherwise they will be unable to present at the conference. 

Dress and Grooming

The Research and Creative Works Conference is a professional event. As such, all presenters are required to follow the conference dress and grooming standards.

The minimum standard for men is a shirt and tie. Jeans are not appropriate. The minimum standard for women is slacks, modest skirts, or dresses -- jeans or leggings are not appropriate. Casual dress or clothing will not be permitted. Treat the conference as if this was a presentation for your future career.

Poster Presentations

Students presenting posters at the conference are not permitted to add the BYU-Idaho logo to their poster unless they use the following templates: Templates - MAC or Templates - PC.

The templates come in the conference-approved poster sizes of 36"x24" and 48"x36." All poster content must follow university guidelines for appropriate content.

The only items that will be provided to students for their presentation are their booth space, a table, a name tag, and poster clips with hooks to hang their posters. Any other supplies (including monitors, TVs, and tablecloths) must be provided by the students presenting at the conference.

Any time someone approaches the booth, student presenters should stand. Be sure to present to the evaluators and audiences in a professional and respectful manner.

Oral Presentations

Students that are presenting oral projects for the Research and Creative Works Conference are expected to be prepared to present at the scheduled time given. Please plan to attend at the beginning of the conference and stay until the last presentation has been given. Presentations must not run longer than 10 minutes. 

Live Performance Presentations

Any costume or dress used in the live performance session of the conference must follow the BYU-Idaho dress and grooming standards. Students that do not adhere to this standard will not be allowed to perform in the conference and will not be evaluated for their performance. 

Performances cannot contain any suggestive words, phrases, meanings, or actions contrary to the BYU-Idaho Honor Code and standards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

Students that are participating or presenting at the Research and Creative Works live session are required to attend the technical rehearsal for the event. They are also required to submit their edited music two weeks prior to the conference.
