ISES Students and New Researcher Events
The Annual Student Poster Competition is scheduled during the Opening Reception on the evening of Sunday, October 15 from 7:00pm-9:00pm. The competition provides a unique opportunity for students to practice and improve their critical thinking and oratory skills by presenting their research to a panel of judges, student peers, and other meeting attendees. Competition eligibility requirements: Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program (Master’s or Doctoral) at a university or college and who are involved in an original research program focused on exposure science are eligible to participate. If you have multiple presentations during the regular conference sessions, select only one for the student poster competition. Although the student is not required to be first author of the poster, they must play the main role in constructing the poster and be the main presenter at the conference. 

1.  Your abstract will be automatically entered in the Student Poster Competition if you selected "Yes" that you wanted your submission to be in the Poster competition in the abstract submission system, and it gets accepted for the general abstract session.
2.  Be prepared to present your poster TWICE during the Annual Meeting — once at the competition on Sunday, October 15 and a second time during the regularly scheduled session assigned to you by the conference organizers.
3.  Note that the Student Poster competition participation is ABOVE AND BEYOND your presentation during the regular conference sessions. If your regular conference presentation is an oral one but you would like to participate in the Student Competition, you will need to prepare a "posterized" version for the Sunday competition. If you are presenting a poster at the regular conference session, you will need to present the poster twice — once during the competition on Sunday night and once during the regularly scheduled conference poster session.
4.  If you have multiple presentations during the regular conference sessions, select one for the student poster competition. If you have both oral and poster presentations during the regular conference sessions, you may select your poster or prepare a "posterized" version of your oral presentation for the student competition.
5.   At the Sunday poster competition, each competitor will be required to present his/her poster(s) in a pre-assigned area for review. Posters will be grouped by research topics to enhance student communication and networking during the Sunday reception.
6.   Competitors will need to stand near their poster during the judging and be prepared to answer questions about their work. If approached by the review panel, competitors will be asked to summarize their poster in a two-minute oral presentation and to respond to questions raised about their research by the viewing judges.
