Student-Oriented Research Poster Sessions

Looking for meetings that cater to student projects in a wide area of domains, covering any of the S&D Tracks? The following list includes some conferences that try that sponsor large student-only posters sessions. Please remember that your mentor is the best person to ask about conference opportunies. Note that while mentors often encourage students to submit to professional specialty society conferences, this list does not include any of these meetings.

Students are eligible for up to $500 toward conference travel funding support per academic year. To be considered for travel funding support, please complete the Student Travel Funding Support Form. Although Pritzker cannot guarantee that every student will be funded, nor that the general allocation will cover the entire travel expense and program fees, Pritzker's goal is to provide funding relief to as many students as possible. Given that conference travel funding support is limited, be sure to discuss with your mentor which conferences may be most beneficial for you to attend.
