The 19th UIUC Structural Engineering Conference scheduled to be held at the I-Hotel on April 4th, 2018 is sponsoring a Best Poster Award during the conference. The award is open to all UIUC structural engineering graduate students. The poster size should be 48in. x 36in. and should present the student’s own research. The student should be the lead author and presenter of the poster. Students are expected to be present next to their posters at the conference during lunch time and coffee breaks. All non-UIUC conference attendees will be asked to cast their votes for the best poster. The Best Poster Award winner will be announced at the conclusion of the conference. The winner will receive a certificate and a $200 cash award. Students who intend to participate should register their posters by sending an email to conference chair, Professor Bassem Andrawes (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, March 30th, 2018. The email should include a tentative title for the poster and the name of the student’s research advisor. The first 10 students to register will have their poster printing fees covered by the conference.
