The I-Cubed program encourages students to submit abstracts for consideration as poster presentations. Posters will be displayed in a formal Poster Reception with authors available for material discussion on October 25th from 5:00-7:00pm. All accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts to be distributed at the NSF Research Day, as well as posted on the program website, http://i3.institutes.ufl.edu/

 

First Time This Year! - NSF Research Day will feature a Poster Contest with awards given to the highest-scoring posters in four categories. The poster winners will receive a $200 award (or $300 for the Communicating Science category) that can be used for research related travel and/or lab supplies. There will be also honorable mentions for seven posters. The posters will be judged by a team of faculty and graduate students during the Poster Reception on October 25th. Participation in the poster contest is optional; you may submit an abstract for a poster without entering the contest.
