To be eligible, a short paper submitted to the ICoMST scientific program committee must have been accepted for presentation at the meeting and a competition application form completed and sent separately to Dr Rick Holley at the University of Manitoba. On this form, students indicated which of either the poster or oral competition they wished to enter. These will be evaluated in separate sessions. Students could enter only one of the two competitions.
Contestants will make poster presentations on Monday August 13 beginning at 1 pm. The first session of judging by the committee shall consist of poster reviews with none of the contestants present. Poster presentation should be completely assembled on Monday August 13 between 11:30 am and 12 noon. The room location will be provided on site at the registration desk.
