Student Poster Session

  • Poster dimension: 48″ x 48″
  • Abstract submission link (150-300 words). Submission opens February 9th and closes March 18th.
  • Awards (the top three highest-scoring posters will be awarded a certificate)
    • Posters scored by faculty on a five-point scale in the following categories:
      • Aesthetics and Clarity— the arrangement of the poster and selection of graphics and how well the poster conveys the research in question
      • Content— how well the poster and presentation explain the research in question and the role of imaging science in research
      • Presentation— the ability to generate and maintain audience interest with effective communication and the ability to answer follow-up questions
  • If anyone would like to print at the MIR visual center (, here is the submission link.
    • MIR has its requirement for poster printing which depends on the poster type and poster materials.  The poster for the conference is recommended to be the rolled type, 42 x 60 inches for fabric material, and 44 x 90 inches for paper material.
