Call for Abstracts / Posters     

The Purdue University Chapter of Sigma Xi, the scientific research society, is conducting a Graduate Student and Post-Doctoral Fellow Research Awards Competition in the format of a scientific poster session.  You and your advisor do not need to be Sigma Xi members to participate in this competition.  Also, you do not need a brand new finding.  You can use a recent poster presented at a scientific conference or meeting.

There will be a first prize of $200, provided by Sigma Xi, as well as recognition for other outstanding posters in each of the four research areas:

  • Graduate Student, Physical Sciences
  • Graduate Student, Life and Agricultural Sciences
  • Graduate Student, Engineering
  • Graduate Student, Behavioral and Social Sciences
  • Post-doctoral, Behavioral Sciences
  • Post-doctoral, Physical, Life and Engineering Sciences

There will be one prize for each approximately 15 posters in a research area. In recent years, this has resulted in 2-3 top awards in both Life Sciences and in Engineering.  Post-doctoral Fellows also are eligible to participate.  There will be one award for post-doctoral fellows across the two post-doc categories.

Link to Details and Instructions  Here you will find instructions, the Acknowledgement of Permission, , a sample judging sheet, the abstract template, and the Abstract Sumission form. Please submit the acknowledgement form and your abstract in MS Word (.doc or .docx) format via email to hnzelaz@purdue.edu on or before 11:59 p.m. Friday, February 9, 2018.
