Call for Poster Judges

Judges receive complimentary conference registration!

We are seeking approximately 50 judges to review and score approximately 150 posters. Ideal candidates are STEM fellows, post-docs, STEM faculty researchers, representatives from industry, and student mentors.

Session Format

To allow for the most student participation, students will submit their recorded presentation, abstract, and .pdf of their poster. This is the material that will be scored by the judges to determine the poster competition winners. Students still have the option to present at the conference, but judges are not required to attend.

Session Format

  • Judges will be given their poster assignments by October 12th.
  • Judging will be conducted asynchronously (offline) from Friday, October 14th to Thursday, October 20th.
  • Each poster is judged three times for calibration.
  • The top three scores determine the poster competition winners.
  • Students have the option to present their poster in person at the conference on Saturday, October 29. The conference attendees will vote for "People's Choice" at this time. Judges are not required to attend, but if you are at the conference, we encourage you to stop by and give your feedback in-person to your assigned presenters.
