Computation and Networking Support
GIT's Computational Unit provides computer-related support to the faculty and staff of GIT, COS, and EIT. Albert Everett is the Computational Group Manager. Chris Austin covers EIT and Rubben Johnson covers COS. Ken Kalb supports instruments and the computers that run them.
Services include software, hardware, server support, networking and help with departmental websites. Between the team members we can help with computer issues related to UNIX/Linux, Windows and Macintosh. We often work with departments and the Computing Services network group to resolve networking issues.
GIT will print files on a large format HP printer for UALR colleges and departments that it serves (GIT, COS, EIT, Nanotechnology Center).
To request a poster, please call the GIT Office at 569-8210. Your request must be made at least three business days before you need your poster. Posters submitted with lead time less than three business days will be billed double the normal rate. We have a poster authorization form in PDF and Excel formats that have fields for budget numbers, etc. This form must be filled out and signed before we will release your printed poster.
Please send your poster files to us via email at <email@example.com>. Consider sending a scanned copy of the completed authorization form along with your poster files to expedite the process.
Posters should be submitted in either PowerPoint 2000 or Adobe Acrobat format.
For poster sized up to 36" x 48"
- No background color, standard graphics & text: $40.00
- Background color, standard graphics & text: $60.00
- Design and/or correction fees: $30.00/hr
Posters sized up to 36" x 48" will be charged according to the schedule listed above. Posters larger than 48" long will be charged the base price plus 25% per extra foot. The maximum poster width is 36" due to the paper-roll size.
Please submit artwork that is ready to print. If the design needs corrections, you will be responsible for making them or agree to pay the appropriate design fees listed above. You will be charged for posters reprinted due to author errors and failure to proofread.
PowerPoint files should be designed as one large slide with the Page Set Up for a Custom size of 36" x 48", or whatever size is appropriate for your poster. PowerPoint can scale slides up (i.e., a slide sized 7.5" x 10" can be printed at 36" x 48"), but this does not always work smoothly and we do not recommend it.
Design the text and artwork to be read easily from a distance. We recommend sizing fonts to 24-points for content and between 44 and 88-points for headings. Note: some conferences specify the size font to use, refer to your instructions.
We do not recommend designing posters with colored backgrounds or dark graphic elements because they consume more ink, take longer to dry, cost more and may not turn out well.
GIT offers short courses to the faculty & staff of EIT, GIT, and COS as well as to the outlying community. Short courses are available to train your staff on Computer Aided Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis, Engineering Data Analysis, Microsoft Office, Windows, Linux/UNIX, and more.
Check this page for an updated class schedule. To arrange a community class, please contact GIT at (501) 569-8210.
