APS and CNM Student Awards

The APS/CNM Users Meeting offers two great opportunities for students to gain special recognition for their work at Argonne's user facilities.

Each facility will award a Student Invited Talk (prize includes free registration and social event ticket): Students may choose to have their poster abstract considered for conversion to a brief  invited brief talk during the facility plenary session. Winners may present a poster in addition to the talk, if they wish, but they will not be eligible for poster prizes. Candidates must submit their abstract and a CV via their RegOnline registration record.

Student Poster Prizes: All student posters (except those selected for talks) will be considered for $100 cash prizes. Winners will be recognized at an appropriate session during the meeting. Each facility will award prizes.
