Student Posters

The Virtual AFS FiltCon 2021 will have a student poster competition.  Conference attendees will be able to access the posters throughout the conference from the virtual lobby.  The student poster presentation and competition will take place on Tuesday from 1:40 - 3:40 pm.  All conference attendees are encouraged to participate in the poster presentations.  Through our networking platform of the virtual conference, participants will have the opportunity to meet with the student presenters.

(2)   The overall ORGANIZATION of the poster;

(3)   The clarity and thoroughness of the poster oral PRESENTATION;

(4)   The overall ORIGINALITY of the poster topic.
