Abstract submission closes on December 22.
As in past years, a poster prize competition will be held to recognize the best presentations at the undergraduate and graduate student level. If you would like to opt out of this year’s competition, please email Imisi Agbaniyaka.
Judges will assess posters and talk to presenters throughout the session. Each poster will be assessed by at least two faculty judges, who will provide written feedback for presenters in addition to scoring the presentation. If you plan to compete in the competition, we strongly recommend that you remain by your poster for the majority of the session (Friday 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. ET), so as to not miss your judges’ visits.
Two winners (first place and second place) will be selected, with awards announced on Friday evening.
Presentation of a poster provides an opportunity for effective one-to-one communication. The longer presentation time of the poster session enables you to present a more in-depth description and discussion of your work.
To make a successful poster presentation:
