Applied Research Day - Information for Exhibitors

Each booth will consist of two backdrops, each 24" wide x 36" high for mounting posters or photos, etc. The abstract will be provided and will be mounted on one of these backdrop boards. The front table is 3 feet by 6 feet and will come with a table cloth. Two chairs will be provided. If you request a monitor for digital display, it will sit on the table so the aisles can be left clear.

About Scholarly Activity at Langara

We are a community of thinkers guided by the four pillars model* of academic scholarship:
  • Discovery (advances knowledge)
  • Integration (across disciplines or time)
  • Application (aids society and professions by providing solutions to problems)
  • Teaching and Learning (a systematic study)

What are you thinking about? Explore our opportunities for scholarly activity and collaborative research.
