To be eligible for this event, you must be a registered student at NMT.


Tuesday, April 14 @ 5PM, Fidel Ballroom B

Event Coordinator: Liz Lyons, 575.835.5001

Six individual presenters (no teams) will be selected to attend and present at the Oral Presentations Dinner on Tuesday evening. Each presenter will have an eight-minute PowerPoint slide presentation followed by two-minute Q&A with dinner attendees. Attendees include fellow presenters, students, evaluators, reviewers, faculty and staff, and special guests. 

Spaces are limited so apply early, and make sure to select Oral Presentation as part of your registration. You must submit an abstract as well. Both are due by 5pm on Wednesday, March 11th.

The presenter selections will be based on your abstract submission. The SRS Abstract Review Committee will look at your title and abstract to determine the top six students who will be selected to present. The selections will feature a range of topics and disciplines.

You will receive valuable feedback on your presentation through evaluator comments and reviewer feedback.

Dinner Information

Each selected presenter will receive two dinner invitations - one for the presenter and one for their invited guest.  Dinner will be catered by Chartwells.


How will I know if I'm selected to present?

All applicants will be notified through email if you've been selected or not.

What if I'm not selected?

Presentations not selected for the Oral Presentation Dinner are guaranteed a poster space at one of the four Poster Sessions at Fidel on April 14th or 15th.

How will I be evaluated?

I'm not a presenter, but I want to attend the Oral Presentations Dinner. How do I reserve a seat to eat dinner?
