A first prize of NZ$750 plus up to 3 others prizes of NZ$250 are on offer for the student poster competition. The competition will be similar to previous events, with an emphasis on a poster that can communicate your research to other researchers from outside your discipline.

A number of sponsored places are available for UOC and UOW students. Let your supervisor know that you would like to come and ask them to put your name forward to your respective School's Dean.  We look forward to welcoming you to the event.
