The five technical divisions of TMS are pleased to sponsor the student poster contest held each year at the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in this dynamic and interactive event.
Contest qualifications in addition to developing poster presentations of technical interest to individuals in the various technical divisions, participants must satisfy the following qualifications:
* Authors must be full-time students who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees.
* Authors must register to attend the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition and be present to put-up and take-down the posters.
* Authors must be present during a scheduled “Exhibit Showing” (similar to a science fair) to answer questions and discuss their work.
* Each author may use up to a 114 cm x 114 cm (45” x 45”) space. If poster exceeds this space, it will be neither presented nor eligible for contest. (Authors are assigned display numbers prior to the conference to designate where presentations should be posted.)
* Visual aids that could clarify the results of your own work are encouraged. Do not, however, post your paper text. Graphics should be simple, colorful, well labeled and clear. The title should be written in letters 2 cm (3/4") to 5 cm (2") high, and all material should be readable from a distance of 2 m (6').
* Only in-person presentations will be judged.
* It is recommended that posters remain hanging throughout the duration of the conference. Winners receive an award ribbon attached to their poster to be displayed throughout the remainder of the week.
Indicate whether you are a graduate student or an undergraduate student as this is a requirement. Your abstract will be rejected if you do not complete this field.
YOU MAY SUBMIT TO ONE DIVISION ONLY!
