About the GMiS Research Poster Competition

Each year at the GMiS Conference, college students have the opportunity to showcase their latest research findings through a poster presentation to STEM professionals. Students are encouraged to present unclassified research - dissertation, thesis, senior project, or co-op, internship or research experiences. Students have the opportunity to earn monetary prizes and be recognized at the Student Leadership Show. Furthermore, students have an opportunity to further enhance their job search as competition judges may be looking for technical talent to recruit into graduate programs, research labs, summer internships, co-ops, or full-time employment.

The 2021 Virtual GMiS Research Poster Competition

The traditional Research Poster Category invites undergraduate and graduate students, from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM, to submit an abstract and present a poster on their ongoing/current research project. Participants in this category will have the option to submit an additional three-minute YouTube video presentation of their poster. Finalists will virtually present their research to a judging panel composed of STEM professionals from industry, academia, government agencies.

The Conceptual Research Category invites undergraduate and graduate students, from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM, whose research was adversely impacted by COVID-19, to submit a very well-written and concise abstract on their proposed science, engineering, computing, technology or health-related research project. The research project might have been a project that was never started, has been delayed to this fall or next spring, or is the beginning of your senior design, thesis or dissertation work. Finalists will virtually present their conceptual abstract to a judging panel composed of STEM professionals from industry, academia, government agencies.
