Call for Student Posters

Due date: September 2018

The Northwestern Region seeks to encourage student research by providing a forum for students to present the results of their work. We invite undergraduates, including those who completed their Bachelor's degrees within the last year, to submit an abstract describing their research or significant project.

Students wishing to participate should e-mail a one-page executive summary to the Student Posters Chair. Detailed guidelines on student poster submission.

During the conference, an area will be reserved for the display of student posters and related materials describing their research or projects.
