This full session is composed of 5-minute student presentations that provide current students or graduates of the program the opportunity to present a technical project and/or interest. Participants may choose to present their work in the form of a focused presentation, a short demo, or an applied methodology (research/industry work).

College students (current or graduated) are invited to submit a short abstract (150-word max.) headed with the applicant’s full name and title of the talk. The title of the talk must be 65 characters or less, including spaces.
