Women’s Student Research Poster Competition on April 8

CEWiT is proud to present the second annual Women’s Research Poster Competition | Achievements of Women in STIM (Science, Technology, Informatics, and Mathematics) on Friday, April 8, 2016 from 2-5 pm. Participants will have the opportunity to present a poster about their research, receive feedback from judges on their posters and presentations, meet other women researchers, and compete for prizes. We are now accepting submissions for posters and requesting volunteers for judges.

TO REGISTER A POSTER:

Who can participate? This is an interdisciplinary competition and all women students, graduate and undergraduate, whose research connects or utilizes technology, science, informatics, or math are invited to come and present their research. Both individual and team presentations are welcome, and there is no fee for participating in the poster competition. IMPORTANT: We are not just open to traditional “STIM” fields, but invite posters from any discipline - from education to fine arts to biology to business and more - where the research intersects with STIM.

What are the poster requirements? All posters submitted should be 4 feet wide by 3 feet long in dimensions. A horizontal or landscape presentation is preferred, but not required. We will provide tri-fold poster boards at the competition to display posters, as well as binder clips to attach the posters to the board.

What are the prizes? The poster competition will be divided into the following categories:
• Technology & Computing
• Life Sciences
• Physical and Mathematical Sciences
• Health and Social Sciences
Prizes of $100 will be given in recognition of the top graduate and undergraduate posters in each category.
