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,


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.
