SPD Student Paper Contest

SPD Student Poster Contest

The Solar Physics Division of the AAS is pleased to announce its annual student poster contest, involving posters presented at the TESS meeting 20-24 May 2018 in Leesburg, VA. In the interdisciplinary collaborative spirit of the TESS meeting the SPD would like to extend an invitation to student participants not only from the AAS SPD but also from AGU/SPA.

In addition to the considerable recognition associated with winning, the award carries with it a cash prize of $250.

Terms for participation:

A "student" is defined in this context as either:

  1. any individual who has not yet been awarded the Ph.D. degree, or
  2. a recent doctoral graduate whose work, as presented on their poster, was carried out wholly as part of earning that degree

The student must be the first author on the poster.

The award winner will be determined and announced during the TESS meeting by the SPD Studentship Committee (Gordon Emslie, Lisa Upton, Matthias Rempel), based on input from the poster judges.

If you are presenting an abstract, please confirm your participation in Presenter’s Corner when you accept your invitation to present. If you are not presenting an abstract and would like to volunteer as a judge please contact Lisa Upton and Matthias Rempel.
