Region H will host its inaugural research poster session at the upcoming regional conference to help region members participating in research programs gain experience presenting their work. We are looking for undergrad and graduate posters and we will need online and on-site judges from academia and industry.

It is necessary that students with research experience get as much practice as possible in presenting their research in a clear and concise manner for any audience. This session will allow students to share their research through a research poster. Students must explain the most important details of their research while also including high-level importance of the project overall. Participants will gain valuable experience in presenting their work, and conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn about exciting research by members of Region H.

Students, please sign up online via this link:
