Users Group Workshop and Annual Meeting
"2009 JLab Users Group Meeting"
June 8-10, 2009
Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA
We are happy to announce the Fourth Annual Poster Competition for Graduate Students. Abstracts must be received no later than Friday, May 29, 2009 to qualify. The first, second, and third-place prizes will be $1000, $500, and $250 respectively. The poster session will occur on Monday evening, 8 June, at the Users Group Annual Meeting in conjunction with a reception.
Judging criteria: Judges will weight the poster and the presentation so that 40% of the score will come from the poster itself (poster quality), 40% will come from the presentation to the judges (command of subject matter), and 20% of the score will be based on the total impression made by both the poster and the presentation.
Please remember that a poster should be concise enough to be read in its entirety in less than ten minutes! Posters with excessive detail will be penalized. Student registration fees will be waived for those participating. Students that are delivering a talk are still eligible to submit a poster. Abstract submissions should be sent electronically (ps. or pdf. format) to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 29th and should be 300 words or less. Please forward this message to any students who you believe may not be on the JLab Users Group mailing list.
