SFIS virtual poster jamboree 2020

Home / SFIS virtual poster jamboree 2020

Since Fall 2018, SFIS has held a poster symposium at the end of every semester to celebrate the research achievements of our students. This semester, we are moving the poster session online. Please join us from 4:30-6 p.m. on Thursday, April 30 to learn about the fantastic work our students have been doing!

How does it work? 

Students will take center stage for a 10-min slot in one of 3 parallel Zoom rooms (see table below), and after a short intro about their project, will field questions from their virtual audience. To catch all the projects you’re interested in you might have to hop between Zoom rooms – and, if you can’t make it to all the poster sessions you’d like to, we encourage you to view the poster PDFs online and reach out to the researchers directly.
