    Hi! I have done two research projects, and did a lot of presentations and am struggling on how to input this information.

    For the first research project, I did:
    An oral presentation at a local conference and a university conference.
    Another oral presentation at a university conference.
    A poster at a local conference and a university conference.

    For the second research project:
    I did a poster at a national conference and a local conference.

    1. Do I include the titles of my poster/oral presentations?
    2. If I include the titles, this info won't all fit into a "Presentations" entry on the W/A section.
    3. I am making both of these research projects my Most Meaningful Experiences. Can I just list the presentations in the Most Meaningful Experience blurbs?

      Any poster or presentation that took place at a campus venue should be mentioned with the affiliated Research entry (with an exception listed below). Any that occurred at a regional/national location deserves its own spot, if you have space.

      Any format for citation is fine, including abbreviated versions when you are short on space. Long author lists can be shortened by stating your place on the list, the PIs name, and et al., titles can be shortened to general topic.

      If the data set from the campus presentation was later presented in poster format at a regional conference, mention after the citation in the same space, "Data also presented orally at DDDD College Research Symposium x/x/xx, and again as a poster that won second place at the YYY Conference in Tucson z/zz/zz date."

      If you were not the presenter for your poster, but your name is on the author list, you can include it, but give credit to the presenter, as research is a team sport, and it's important to give credit where it is due. If you presented, it's fine to say so.
