RSSG 2020 Student Guided Poster Competition Session

Type: Guided Poster
Sponsor Groups: Remote Sensing Specialty Group
Organizers: Yingbin Deng
Chairs: Yingbin Deng

Call for Submissions

A guided poster is a poster accompanied by a short (3‐ to 5‐minute) oral summary of the research problem, data, methods, and findings, followed by a one‐on‐one or small group discussion at individual posters. All oral summaries will be given at the beginning of each guided poster session before participants disperse to the poster boards around the room. Oral summaries must be given without the use of additional AV equipment (e.g., laptops and projectors). Each presenter will be provided a 4' tall x 8' wide board on which to display their poster and materials.
First, second, and third place awards will be determined following the competition sessions. The prizes are:
o First place-$300
o Second place-$200
o Third place-$100
An undergraduate award may also be made to an outstanding undergraduate researcher. The first place award will be presented at the AAG Annual Awards Luncheon and the luncheon fee will be covered for the first place winner. The committee reserves the right to not offer such prizes if the posters are not of appropriate quality.
Posters and oral summaries will be judged on potential contribution to one or more of the sponsoring fields (Remote Sensing and GIS), originality, appropriate use of methodology, organization and composition, clarity, and appropriate use of graphics. Evaluation will take into account the academic level of the entrants.

The Remote Sensing Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 Guided Poster Competition for Students. Students from all academic levels are invited to submit guided poster that advance remote sensing and/or GIS. Research must have been completed within the past academic year as part of the applicant’s undergraduate or graduate studies. Guided posters must be created entirely by the applicant. While posters may include co-authors, the applicant must be primarily responsible for the research presented. Students selected as finalists will be placed in a special guided poster session at the Annual Meeting to be held April 6-10, 2020 in Denver, CO.
Guided Poster Information
We encourage studies on innovative remote sensing and GIS methods, concepts, theories as well as applications. Research must have been completed within the past academic year as part of the applicant's undergraduate or graduate studies and can include thesis/dissertation topics. The applicant must still be a student at the time of presentation. While posters may include co-authors, the applicant must be primarily responsible for the research presented.
