SAS Student Poster Awards & FACSS Poster Awards

A competition for SAS students who are presenting authors will be held and recognition for 4 outstanding posters will be given. The judging will take place on Sunday evening. All SAS students should put up their posters on Sunday evening before the opening mixer as well as on their assigned presentation day.

All SciX conferees are invited to submit titles. Student SAS members must select the appropriate box on the on-line paper submission form to ensure they are considered.

Student awardees will receive a free 1-year SAS membership and a plaque highlighting their achievement. For more information please contact the SAS Office at exdir@s-a-s.org
