Student Research Poster Day

4:00–5:00 pm Jones 303

We invite all students (Stat and CAM) and faculty to the Student Research Poster Day event hosted by the Committee on Community, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (CCEDI). Selected student research posters will be installed in Jones 303 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on February 27, and everyone is welcome to come and look around; light snacks will be provided! 

Call for posters
We invite submissions of all research posters from Stat and CAM students. There is no restriction on the topic; you are welcome to submit any research work done during your graduate program (Stat/CAM, PhD/MS) though we suggest submitting recent research. There will be awards with prizes for the best posters. 

Submit proposals
Please submit your poster proposal by February 1 through https://forms.office.com/r/mC60sNFiji (UChicago sign-in required). We will announce the selected proposals on February 2. Once your proposal is selected, you should email your final poster by February 26. We will print and install posters for you; we will cover the printing cost.

Please email yoonhaenghur@uchicago.edu if you have any questions.
