In the Scientific Panel Discussions, students will respond to questions about their posters. However, they will not present on their posters. Rather, the students’ recorded poster presentations should be viewed in advance of attending the panel sessions, via Box.

Again, you must register at to receive links to Box. When the posters are available for viewing, you will be provided with two different links to Box. One link will be to view posters of graduating students participating in the panel discussions. The second link will be to view posters from non-graduating students who will not participate in the panel discussions.

Please check back a few days prior to May 18 for a detailed program that includes names and poster titles of recorded poster presentations.
