Networking Reception and Student Poster Competition
A networking “happy hour” and student poster competition will be held on Monday at the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa. All attendees are welcome to attend. The ICES student poster competition session is targeted to stimulate the participation of students, and will provide an excellent forum for students to present their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters are ideal for presenting speculative or late-breaking results, or for giving an introduction to interesting, innovative work. Posters are intended to provide students and ICES participants with the ability to connect with one another and discuss the work presented. Each poster will be judged and cash prizes will be awarded.
