You are receiving this email, because you volunteered at least once in 2018-2021 as a judge for the AIChE Undergraduate Student Poster competition.
We are very thankful for your past support, but -as you know- no good deed goes unpunished. The Undergraduate Student Poster Competition will be back in Phoenix. We have accepted ~410 poster abstracts, which means that we need ca. 120 judges to meet our goal for every student to meet with at least 3 judges!
If you are coming to Phoenix, please consider volunteering some of your time again to support the students. It is a special event to see hundreds of eager, talented undergraduates talk about their research results. Come join the fun again! You can sign up using the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/pAqCVDSrTjH8PJR36.
If you are not coming to Phoenix yourself, please share this email with any colleagues and friends who will be attending the conference. We welcome the participation from industrial scientists, faculty members, postdocs, senior graduate students, etc.
The format is still the same as pre-pandemic: on Monday 11/14 in North Hall E of the Phoenix Convention Center, the students will be ready to start presenting their posters at 10am. We will begin checking in judges around 9:45am and request that each judge complete their assessment of ~10 posters by 11:45am. We will then perform the scoring magic and announce the winners (top-3 in each judging section) around 12:15pm. If you are an experienced judge, you will not need the full 1 hr 45 min to complete judging, so we welcome your contributions even if you have a minor time conflict that morning. We will provide scoring rubrics to facilitate the process.
