SusTech 2017 invites undergraduate students to submit abstracts for the Student Poster Contest.
(Download Poster Contest PDF Flyer here.)
Students are invited to send in ideas or designs for developing projects/products supporting the sustainability topics areas of the Conference. The selected posters will be displayed during the SusTech 2017 Student Poster Session, on Sunday November 14, 2017, being held in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
The deadline to submit poster abstracts is midnight US Mountain Time, September 15, 2017.
Notification of acceptance will be October 1st. Accepted posters must then register for Contest and pay the submission fee.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Poster authors must be undergraduate students at the time of submission and may be members of a team comprising of up to four students. At least one student author must be an IEEE student member at the time of the submission of the poster to the Contest. The poster should be fully the work of the student or students and completed before they have received the engineering or scientific degree.
