TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL NIST SIGMA XI POSTDOCTORAL POSTER PRESENTATION
CALL FOR REGISTRATION AND POSTER ABSTRACTS
The NIST Chapter of Sigma Xi invites all Postdoctoral Fellows and eligible Guest Researchers (those who have earned an advanced degree within the last five years) to present a poster on their scientific research to their NIST colleagues at the Twenty-Second Annual NIST Sigma Xi Postdoctoral Poster Presentation (PPP). The PPP will take place on Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 in Lecture Rooms A and B and in the adjoining hallway in the Administration Building (Building 101). There will be two sessions – Session I from 9 am until noon and Session II from 1 pm until 4 pm. Refreshments will be provided during both sessions.
To participate, please register according to the directions found on the Sigma Xi – NIST Chapter web page (www.nist.gov/sigmaxi). Participants should complete the registration form (.docx or .htm) found there and submit it along with a one-page poster abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), text, (.txt) rich text (.rtf), or html (.html or .htm) file. The title should be in all-caps centered on the first line, followed by the full authors’ names starting on the second line. Underline all authors who are Postdoctoral Fellows and/or eligible Guest Researchers. The abstract text should follow and should be limited to one page. The presenting author’s information, including name, telephone number, e-mail address, and advisor’s name, should follow the abstract text. Finally, the author must choose the topic category that best classifies their poster: Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematical Modelling, Physics, or Polymers Science. Templates for properly formatted abstracts, as well as submissions from previous years, can be found at www.nist.gov/sigmaxi. Please note that the poster topic can cover one’s doctoral research if the participant has not been at NIST long enough to have completed sufficient postdoctoral research for a poster. All participating Postdoctoral Fellows and Guest Researchers are also invited to a special reception on Friday, February 20th, 2015 in the Portrait Room, where awards for the most outstanding posters will be announced.
THE DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS IS THURSDAY, JANUARY 15th, 2015. Posters in each session will be numbered according to the time of their receipt; categories will be assigned to sessions according to availability and participation. Space is limited, so please submit your registration early. Submissions are limited to one poster abstract per presenting author. For more information, please contact one of the PPP organizers; Doug Meier at email@example.com, M. Lorna De Leoz at firstname.lastname@example.org, Magdalena Navarro at email@example.com, or Katya Delak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
