Graduate Student Poster Award

A large number of Canadian and international graduate students are expected to attend the Arctic Change 2008 conference. To encourage student research and participation, a poster competition will be organized as part of the conference.

The competition is open to any Masters or Ph.D. student whose poster has been approved for presentation at Arctic Change 2008. Students giving oral presentations are also encouraged to submit a poster for the competition. Only one poster per person can be presented at the meeting. Only registered graduate students present at the poster session and able to discuss their work with the panel of judges are eligible for the awards.

During the dedicated poster session, a panel of judges will evaluate eligible posters based on set criteria such as clarity, comprehensiveness and conciseness of the abstract, the scientific quality and presentation of research. The winners of the Poster Award will receive $500 for first place, $400 for second place and $300 for third place in each of the following four categories: Social Science, Human Health, Marine-Natural Science and Terrestrial-Natural Science. An additional Inuit Partnership of Excellence Award will be awarded to the poster that best addresses Inuit priorities, involves Inuit partners and builds capacity. The winner of the Inuit Partnership of Excellence Award will be presented with an Inuit carving. The Graduate Student Poster Award winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the Banquet Dinner on the evening of 11 December 2008.
