oSTEM 2020 + Out to Innovate- Request for Posters

The oSTEM Annual Conference Poster Session is intended for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs to showcase their research to other conference attendees. Anyone performing academic or industry research is invited to submit a poster for consideration. If you are interested in submitting a poster please do so at the button below.

This year, poster presentations will be virtual. We will be using Gather to display posters to conference attendees, which will allow for a virtual engagement similar to an in-person poster session. You will have the option to respond to questions/comments throughout the duration of the conference.

The final deadline to submit a poster is Friday, November 3.


Poster Display and Awards

Posters will be on display to all conference attendees from Thursday through Sunday. The poster session will be Thursday November 12, 12 pm -2 pm PST. Posters will be presented on Gather. To participate in the poster session you will need to submit a zoomable PDF document of the poster to conference-programming@ostem.org.
