The ICES Student Poster Competition is a program aimed at stimulating student participation and provides an excellent forum for students to present their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters are ideal for presenting speculative or late-breaking results, or for giving an introduction to interesting, innovative work. Posters are intended to provide students and ICES participants with the ability to connect with one another and discuss the work presented.
