For all questions, contact email@example.com, do NOT contact the NSF Program Managers, they are not involved in the competition logistics and will not be able to answer any questions.
Students and graduates are invited to present and/or compete with their posters based on work from NSF-funded research. This forum provides the students an opportunity to disseminate their research to their junior, peer, senior, and experts-in-the-field colleagues. IMECE provides the unique environment for students to interact with fellow researchers from single-focus, multidisciplinary, and/or international backgrounds. The track is divided into the topics of (1) NSF-funded research grants/programs and (2) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REUs).
16-1 Poster Session: NSF-funded Research (Grad & Undergrad)
16-2 Poster Session: NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Both topics will be held simultaneous at the same venue to encourage networking and sharing of information by the participants. Awards will be presented to recognize and rank the outstanding posters and presenters. Judging of the posters will be made on-site. The Track Organizers will provide additional information after abstract acceptance, including poster format and the availability of limited travel grants.
