University students from around the globe will gather for a full day of presentations and posters. The Annual Student Symposium will include oral presentations by graduates, undergraduates and co-op students. Concurrent with the student presentations is the Poster Session.

All student participants are eligible to compete for four awards in the areas of Best Undergraduate/Graduate Oral Presentation and Best Undergraduate/Graduate Poster. Presentations will be judged on content, scope, originality, clarity, organization, delivery, visual aids and subject knowledge. Posters will be judged on originality, neatness, a clearly defined subject and subject knowledge. Conference attendees are encouraged to sit in on these presentations and stop by to view the posters. These students are the future of our industry. Your support of this program is vital in encouraging their endeavors.
