We will offer a new event, the “Lightning Talk”. There are 10 slots available, first signed-up first served. The lightning talk will be judged for one cash prize. This could be a great public speaking opportunity, so we strongly encourage students and postdocs to apply.

Be sure to note any dietary restrictions or other concerns on the registration form.

2. Posters - We strongly encourage posters from all participants. The deadline for poster registration is Tuesday, March 31, 2015 by noon. Please note the size limitations and set-up times on the website. Registered posters will be judged for cash prizes in 2 categories; Undergraduate Student and Graduate Student.
