Student Poster Competition

The ICES student poster competition is a program aimed at stimulating student participation and provides an excellent forum for students to present their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters are ideal for presenting speculative or late-breaking results, or for giving an introduction to interesting, innovative work. Posters are intended to provide students and ICES participants with the ability to connect with one another and discuss the work presented.

Each poster will be judged based on technical rigor, poster format, and the student’s ability to convey the poster content to the judges through an oral presentation. University/college students are invited to submit abstracts on their proposed poster in accordance with the procedures described below. The student’s abstract and poster should be relevant to ICES; that is, they should follow the same theme of the general conference.


Entries must include an abstract, poster title, author name(s), mailing and e-mail addresses of each author, work phone and cell numbers, and university or college affiliation. The first author and the presenting author of the poster must be students. Abstracts will not be accepted if the authors have an accepted manuscript on the same topic for the 2018 ICES conference. The text of the abstract shall be no greater than 350 words and double spaced.  Submittals shall be in MS Word or pdf formats. Adherence to this format is required or the abstract will be rejected.

Poster abstracts shall be emailed as an attachment to Matthias Holzwarth  by Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Authors will be notified of poster presentation acceptance NO LATER THAN Tuesday, May 15, 2018.  All poster participants will be required to pay one of the two Student Registration Fees to attend the conference.  Each poster entry will receive 1(one) complimentary ticket to Wednesday night’s banquet. Monetary awards will be given for the top 3 posters.
