Student Poster Competition - Mizzou Engineering


To register for the Poster Competition, please go to the registration site and “purchase” (cost: $0) the “Register for Poster Competition” product. You will get a confirmation e-mail if your registration was successful.

You may fill out the Poster Competition registration prior to being registered for the conference itself, though of course you must eventually do both.

  • Registration for Poster Competition due: March 31
  • Abstracts due: April 5

Late abstracts will be accepted only if the program has not yet gone to print.

Title and Abstract Submission

Your title, author list and abstract should be submitted via e-mail to MU AIChE or directly to Dr. Hammond (MU faculty advisor) prior to the deadline above. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will not be included in the program if the program has already gone to press. Please do not miss this deadline. Early submission is strongly encouraged.

The body of the abstract should be no longer than 1,800 characters (about 260 words) or so to fit on the page. Abstracts longer than this limit will be edited to fit. We will try to send it back to you if we have to make edits, but the turnaround may be short given that we have to send this to the printer in advance of the conference.

Your e-mail message should look like this; you should replace the text between { } with your own information:


You are free to use LaTeX markup if you know what that means. If you do not, just type everything in plain text, and if you need formatting such as italics, superscripts, mathematics, etc., that you do not know how to enter, either use HTML tags (which we can easily detect) or put a line marked “% FIXME” right above and below it, like so:

This is the
% FIXME this should be boldface
best place ever
to eat cookies, and I have
% FIXME this should be 2 to the 3rd power
2 3
times the number you do.

and that will alert us that there is some manual intervention required.

If you cannot figure out how to do something you want to do and get desperate, send a PDF and/or a description of what you want to do and/or what you want it to look like to Dr. Hammond and he will make it happen.


Posters will be presented in the Engineering Library, W2001 Lafferre Hall, on Saturday, April 15. Presenters are encouraged to set up their posters at around noon and take them down around 4:00. Presenters are required to be at or near their posters from 2-3 p.m. to facilitate judging.

Posters may be any size that fits on our easels, which will have corkboard backings that are 48″ by 48″. Pins and/or clips will be provided.

Winners of the poster competition will be announced at the banquet.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
