This year’s symposium will include a poster session on March 5th to allow additional researchers the opportunity to showcase their work.  This poster session is open to all faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students at Miami University (in all academic divisions).  Participants are welcome to present research, independent study, course, and/or capstone design projects.  Please consider having your work presented as part of this poster session.  This is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to share what they have been working on.

To register for the poster session, please complete the poster session registration survey.
