Proceedings

The Nick Novakowski Senior Project Conference


Grenfell Campus, Memorial University

6 April, 2018

Grenfell Campus Memorial University


Dr. Nick Novokowski

 

This student conference is in memory of Dr. Nick Novakowski, a colleague, mentor, friend, and excellent researcher.

It is fitting that Dr. Novakowski be honoured in this way in that he was known to be one of the most supportive and popular professors.

His door was always open to students and colleagues alike, and he readily engaged in any number of topics.

This conference is a celebration of student research across the campus which was something that Dr. Novakowski championed during the sixteen years that he was a part of the Grenfell community.

His own legacy as a researcher is indicative of the high standards he expected of students and of himself.

We are pleased to welcome students to share their research with the entire Grenfell Campus community and the general public in this forum, in the spirit of Dr. Novakowski’s dedication to research excellence.


General information The conference will start at 1515h in the atrium with a welcome by Dr. Jeff Keshen followed by a set of concurrent oral presentation sessions in various rooms round the Arts and Science Building and Annex. A nutritional break and poster session will take place from 1700h-1730h in the Atrium and Airport Lounge areas of the Arts and Science Annex. The conference will move to the Fine Arts Building at 1900h for the Silent Art Auction and Senior Theatre Production.

Oral Presentations Length of the oral presentations has been set by each student’s program. Presentations should be compatible with the computer systems in the Grenfell lecture rooms and delivered to your session moderator on a USB thumb drive or by email ahead of time to allow for uploading.

Poster Presentations Posters should be hung in the designated areas of the Atrium and Airport Lounge on Friday afternoon before the conference begins. Presenters should consult with their program chair/advisor regarding poster size specifications. Poster presenters should bring their own materials (tape, sticky tack, etc.) to hang their posters. Poster presenters are expected to attend their poster during the poster session/nutritional break (1700h – 1730h). Some programs may require poster presenters to attend their posters for more time than is allotted in the schedule. Please remove your poster when the conference ends.

Breaks A nutritional break will be held from 1700h-1730h in the Arts and Science building Atrium and Airport Lounge areas. Though coffee cups will be provided, we ask that you please bring your own re-usable beverage container.
