Student Competition Finalists 2015


The Top highest-scoring student abstract submissions will be featured as the finalists in the Student Competition and displayed for the duration of the conference.  The Student Competition finalists will receive their  final judging onsite at the conference during their assigned session.  Scores will be tabulated to determine the winners of the competition. In the event of a tie, judges will refer to the original scores for the tiebreaker.  All judges decisions ae final. All poster finalists will receive a certificate and be recognized onstage as part of the Student Competition Awards Ceremony.
