The call for abstracts is now open. We encourage you to explore this possibility, even if you are a beginner! Some of our previous winners were first time presenters. Note: Abstract submissions are due by November 6 but the actual posters are not due until March 16.
Presenting a poster gives you the opportunity to:
- Share knowledge to enhance your field of study
- Build your academic portfolio and CV
- Develop your reputation as a subject matter expert
- Network to find collaborators for future research
- Meet scholarship requirements for faculty ranking and promotion
- Develop skills that can be applied to submitting abstracts and posters for national conferences in your field
- Compete for an award!
