Student Poster Competition

Monday, October 7
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Laguna, Concourse Level, Fourth Floor

On behalf of 2019 InterPACK organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that a student poster competition will be held during 2019 InterPACK (October 7-9, Hilton Anaheim, Anaheim, CA).

The Industry, Academia and National Lab Poster Session during InterPACK will be open to all students. It will provide a great opportunity for student attendees to showcase their research, and collect feedback from professionals and experts in the area of electronics and photonics packaging in an interactive way. This is also a networking opportunity for the students who have an interest in distributing their resumes and connecting with professionals from industry, academia and national labs.

Each student poster in this competition will be judged by experts in the area of electronics and photonics packaging on the following aspects: originality, technical quality, completeness, clarity, and communications and interactions during the poster session. The top three student poster presenters will be awarded the Nasser Grayeli Best Student Poster Awards – first, second, and third place. The first, second, and third-place students will receive cash awards of $500, $300, and $200, respectively, and will also have their registration fees reimbursed. The awards will be presented at the 2019 InterPACK Awards Luncheon. In addition, based on the review process, the lead student author for another top-17 posters will have their registration fees reimbursed after the conference.
