Outstanding Student Paper Awards
Judges from most of the Sections and Focus Groups will be circulating throughout the meeting, in order to identify the best presentations by first-author students at the meeting. Judges will consider the scientific content of the work, but will place significant emphasis on the quality of the presentation delivery and graphics and the knowledge and poise of the student presenter.
