The student poster exhibition is typically a dedicated time when conference participants can view posters and interact with student researchers as they explain their marine-related research. For 2020, the session is moving to a virtual format that will include short “ignite-style” presentations. This remains an opportunity for students to showcase their research and gain professional experience.
State of the Coast invites contributions from advanced undergraduates (juniors or seniors), recent graduates and graduate students.
We welcome submissions from any discipline related to issues and opportunities facing the marine environment: biology, anthropology, law, engineering, policy, chemistry, business, ecology, environmental science, management, and more!
Goals of student engagement at State of the Coast
The 2020 call for Student Research Submissions is now closed.
2020 Submissions will be reviewed with the following selection criteria:
Note that accepted presenters will be judged at the conference on two things: 1) The design and ability of your presentation materials to effectively visually communicate research in an accessible way to a broad audience with mixed interests. 2) Your ability to verbally communicate in an effective way to a broad audience with mixed interests.
One submission per student.
