2019 Black Caucus Student Poster Session

We are pleased to announce a special student poster session as part of our Black Caucus events at the 2019 SRCD Biennial Meeting. The Black Caucus Student Poster Session will be held during the Black Caucus reception (Friday, March 22, 2019; 5:30pm-7pm) after the business meeting and will give undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to showcase their research to our membership. Also, there will be a Best Poster award competition.

Abstracts for this poster session are due by Friday, February 15, 2019 at 8pm. Submissions for this poster session must have a student (undergraduate; graduate student) as the first author. As this is meant to be an informal poster session, students will be allowed to submit work presented at the larger SRCD conference as well as newly submitted work. However, priority will be given to students whose work was not accepted at the larger biennial meeting.

Students in all disciplines are welcome to submit.
