Sigma Pi Sigma, GRASP, and SPS  is hosting the 2nd Annual Department of Physics and Astronomy Poster Competition! It will be held on Friday, October 12th from 10:00 am - 01:00 pm. 

This year, we will have three separate divisions: PhD Students, MS Students, and Undergraduate Students.  The department has graciously agreed to cover the cost of poster printing for all participants and has also agreed to provide cash prizes for students who place in each division.  While the participation of all students involved in research is strongly encouraged, this is especially a good opportunity for anyone planning to present a poster at the Texas APS meeting (October 19-20).   This competition offers participants the opportunity to practice poster presentation and receive feedback to improve poster design before going to the conference.

The deadline for poster submission will be midnight on Sunday, October 7th and deadline for abstracts about a week earlier (date will be provided with the submission instruction email).  Posters should be 36"x 48" and university approved templates along with some poster making tips are available from the TLPDC, Graduate School, and the Print Bureau (names are clickable hyperlinks).  Additionally, Dr. Morehead was kind enough to provide the attached PDF which is a poster with tips on designing a great poster.

If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email.  With a little over a month to work on posters and cash prizes on the line, we look forward to another great turnout this year!
