Abstract Submission Deadline for AGU Virtual Poster Showcase
October 12, 2015
Abstract Submission for Virtual Poster Showcases #2 (for Undergraduate Students) and #3 (for Graduate Students) Are Now Open
An exciting new opportunity for undergraduate (and in one instance, graduate) students to showcase their research is being piloted and launched by AGU this year. While many students conduct research with faculty in organized summer programs, as part of their course work, or as part of their degree program, they often face barriers to traveling to present that research, especially at national conferences. The virtual poster showcases will allow participation by those students who can’t travel.
These sessions will bring together student presenters with faculty co-authors to highlight Earth, atmospheric, ocean, space science, and environmental science research experiences. Students from community colleges to research institutions, from freshmen through seniors (and for Showcase #3, graduate students) are encouraged to disseminate their original, ongoing and completed projects. A certificate of participation will be awarded to all students who complete all steps of the virtual poster showcase, including judging 3 peers’ posters. Please note, you do not need to be an AGU member to participate.
The deadline for abstract submissions is 12 October.
Students not only get valuable feedback on their science but also gain experience in reviewing the research of other students. This affordable and accessible option is ideal for students and can help build their academic résumés. View timelines and learn more.
