The ITherm organizing committee is delighted to announce that "The Student Poster and Networking Session" will be held at ITherm 2017 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, Orlando.

The student poster and networking session is open to all registered students who have submitted a technical paper, and provides opportunities for them to present their research and interact with other conference attendees from industry and academia. There will also be a networking element that allows interested students to distribute resumes and get connected to industrial representatives.

Interested students can apply using the poster application form: Students who apply will be competitively selected for poster presentation at the conference and for travel grants.

Outstanding posters will also be selected for awards and will be judged based on technical merit, clarity and self-sufficiency of the content, novelty and originality of the work, overall impact of the poster display and oral presentation at the poster session. The poster awards are independent of the paper awards and the same work is eligible for winning both awards based on the specific judging criteria for each.

We strongly encourage all students who have or plan to submit technical papers to participate at the Student Poster and Networking Session and to utilize these opportunities to publicize your research and help build your network. We look forward to your posters!
