Call for Judges – Alan Wu Poster Competition


Tuesday, May 14, 2019 09:00 am - Tuesday, May 14, 2019 12:00 pm


Chestnut Conference Centre, 89 Chestnut Street


We are inviting IMS faculty members and Post-Docs to participate in  Scientific Day as poster judges for this year’s student Alan Wu Poster Competition. Serving as a poster judge is roughly a one hour commitment on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at either 9am – 10am or 11am – 12pm. The event takes place at Chestnut Conference Centre.

Poster judges will adjudicate in pairs and be given ranking sheets, judging criteria and a briefing before the competition begins. The posters should be presented in a way that is accessible to any scientist, so judges are not expected to be content experts. Alan Wu Poster Prizes are presented to the overall two most outstanding poster presentations, as well as an honorable mention for the best poster presentation in each group.

Scientific Day is the academic highlight of the year. It is a great way to meet students and learn about all the exciting research taking place in the IMS. Active faculty involvement helps make Scientific Day a success.

If you are interested in serving as a poster judge please contact ims.scientificday@utoronto.ca
