General Poster Session Information

The poster session is open to all student, post-doc, and faculty researchers who are presenting research that addresses the S3OK research themes of shifting sub-seasonal to seasonal weather patterns; wastewater reuse; carbon sequestration via terrestrial processes; increasing wildfire threats; resiliency of water, electric, and transportation infrastructure; and related social dynamics. Judges will review students' poster presentations.

The poster session will be held during the first day of the event. Presentation assignments will be determined by conference organizers after registration closes. All posters will be on-view and remain set up throughout the event. (All posters must be set up by 10:00 a.m. on Day 1.)

Space constraints may limit the number of poster abstracts that can be accepted. Student presenters will take precedence.

Special Judged Oral Presentation Session 

The Special Judged Oral Presentation Session will spotlight at least fifteen students’ research on the S3OK project by delivering a one-minute oral presentation to judges during the conference. EPSCoR OLAN and faculty members will select at least fifteen Oral Presentation Presenters through an abstract review process*; three presenters will be chosen from each of the S3OK subgroups (i.e., SD, SI, S2S, TWCD, and VWQM). (*Members will abstain from making selections within their own subgroups). Presenters in this session will only be S3OK students. Further, students selected to present in the Special Judged Oral Presentation session will be required to present a poster. 

Poster and general participant registration are free, but required, via the links on this page. If you are a poster presenter, please register for both the general registration and the poster regsitration. 
Poster Presenter Registration is Closed.
