Poster Categories


This is an interdisciplinary competition and all women, graduate and undergraduate, whose research connects or utilizes technology, science, informatics, or math are invited to come and present their research. We are not just open to traditional “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) fields, but invite posters from any discipline – from education to fine arts, and from biology to business – whose research intersects with technology.

Some of your work may fall into more than one of these categories, so please choose the category that you feel you align with most. If you are unsure which category fits your research best, please feel free to e-mail us!

Students will register to compete in one of the following categories: 

Technology and Computing
This includes posters that involve studying technology as a content area (e.g. telecommunications, computer science, digital art, business information systems, etc.), utilizing technology in your research (e.g. data visualization, audio or visual technologies, data mining), and studying how people interact with technology (utilizing technology in the classroom, impact of technology on society, law and technology, etc.)

Life Sciences
This includes posters that involve the study of living systems, including fields such as biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, bioanthropology, etc.

Physical and Mathematical Sciences
This includes posters that involve the study of non-living systems or mathematical processes, including fields such as chemistry, physics, astronomy, geology, mathematics, statistics, etc.

Health and Behavioral Sciences
This includes posters that involve the study of human behavior or health, including fields such as neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, medical sciences, public health, speech and hearing sciences, kinesiology, etc.

Social Sciences
This includes posters that involve the study of the social life of human groups and individuals, including disciplines such as anthropology, criminal justice, economics, geography, history, political science, sociology, etc.
