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.
Undergraduate Research and Design Expo Student Poster Competition
The IMECE Undergraduate Research and Design Exposition is a poster forum that provides undergraduate mechanical engineering students with a professional and technical forum for presenting their research, design project, and other engineering solutions and endeavors. IMECE provides the unique environment for students to interact with fellow researchers from single-focus, multidisciplinary, and/or international backgrounds. Interested students should submit an abstract by September 12th. The students will then submit their poster and a 1-minute video by September 30th. Posters will be judged based on the submitted poster and video. ASME is sponsoring monetary awards for first, second and third place.
Abstract Requirements: Abstracts should be submitted using the IMECE webtool. Login as an "Author/Organizer" and then click the button to submit an abstract. You must submit your abstract to the "Undergraduate Research and Design Expo Student Poster Competition" track. The abstract should be 400-600 words long and should include the following elements: An introduction that provides the motivation and purpose of the research. The contribution of the work toward advancing science and/or engineering. The methodology used (e.g., experimental techniques, analytical, computational, etc.). Preliminary results and conclusions. A minimum of one student author per poster must register after the abstract is accepted. The student registrant will be provided access to the conference. Please note that this is a POSTER PRESENTATION competition, only. A paper is not required nor will it be accepted or will it be an option.
