Student E-poster Competition

ELIGIBILITY

The competition is open to individuals who are full-time students at the time of submission for work recently performed while enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degree program.

Advisers must certify that the research presented on the poster involves only the work of students enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral degree program at the time the work was performed.
Please alert your adviser to respond to our verification email.

Each applicant can only submit one abstract and must include the non-refundable $25 abstract submission fee.

Co-authors names can appear on the E-poster PDF, but they cannot be listed in the abstract submission nor can they participate in the oral presentation (video or virtual meeting with judges).
Submissions that do not meet these criteria will be disqualified.

GETTING PREPARED

Please review the 2022 AAAS Student E-poster Competition Guidelines for important deadlines and instructions on how to prepare your abstract.

The deadline to submit an abstract and the non-refundable $25 application fee is September 28, 2021, 11:59 PM PST.

VIRTUAL REVIEW AND JUDGING

For the 2022 Annual Meeting, each approved presenter will prepare and submit a PDF of their E-poster and a 3 minute video that will be an oral synopsis of their work. These materials will be reviewed and scored to determine who will advance to the final round. Finalists will be invited to virtually meet with judges for a 10 minute session. All winners will be announced on Sunday, February 20, 2022.

All accepted E-poster abstracts, PDFs and videos will be available to meeting attendees and the general public on the 2022 AAAS Annual Meeting online program.

PRIZES

There will be an undergraduate AND a graduate student First and Honorable Mention place winners for each category. Please be sure to note your student status on your abstract submission.

The honorable mention place winning undergraduate and graduate students in each category will have their name and poster title printed and published in Science and will receive a recognition certificate. Please be sure to note your student status on your abstract submission.
