Poster Competition

The  Poster Competition is for graduate and undergraduate students interested in high performance computing. This competition enables students to share the results of projects that they have performed, while also engaging in a competition for the best posters.

To participate in the poster session, students are required to:

a. Complete a project. Projects submitted must be original individual student work

b. Prepare a 1 minute “lightening talk”/teaser about your poster and research to be presented at the conference (guidelines are provided below)

c.  Create a poster and upload the PDF of the poster to Easy Chair

d. Submit an abstract to provided link  You can return later to upload the poster in the PDF format. The website will recognize your e-mail address. You must have your poster uploaded no later than TBD.

e. By submitting a poster for consideration, the student agrees that the poster can be displayed on the RMACC website.

** Prepare a 1 minute lightning talk about your poster including two powerpoint slides. (A title slide and informational slide)- Please note there is a strict 1 minute time limit. Lightening talks will take place on TBD.

Posters will be judged by content experts according to an established rubric which includes but not limited to:

a. Creative ability-originality, method, analysis, interpretation

b. Scientific/engineering thought (planning, scope, design, procedure, data)

c. Thoroughness (objective realized)

d. Clarity (written/visual).

Other Considerations:

  1. Judges will be reviewing submitted pdfs of posters before the symposium begins.
  2. Judges can ask questions to entries using the Easy Chair system. Students will be notified when if a judge asks them a question and will be given 24 hours to respond.
  3. All students will be expected to attend in person (unless other arrangements are made) and be available to answer questions about their posters during designated breaks/lunches
  4. All students will give a lightening talk
