MSI Research Exhibition 2014
The fifth annual MSI Research Exhibition will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2014, 1:30 - 3:30, on the 4th floor of Walter Library.
This event provides members of the University of Minnesota community with an opportunity to learn about research being done at the University using MSI's high-performance computing resources, and also the opportunity to network with each other and with members of the local business community. The highlight of the exhibition is a poster session where MSI researchers will present their research. The Research Exhibition is a great opportunity for researchers to meet others with complementary interests, and, hopefully, to start new collaborations!
Everyone is invited! Light refreshments will be served.
Information for Poster Presenters:
Poster competition finalists will receive travel awards that can be used for travel to conferences or professional meetings. All MSI users are encouraged to submit posters.
To be eligible for a prize, the primary author should be someone other than a faculty member/PI.
Posters should be submitted in one of the following categories:
• Physical sciences and engineering
• Biological and medical sciences
Three finalists will be chosen from each of these categories, and a single Grand Prize winner will be selected from the entire group of finalists.
How to Submit a Poster Proposal (Due March 14):
If you want to participate in the poster session, please send a poster proposal containing the following information to email@example.com by March 14, 2014:
• Poster title
• One- or two-sentence description of the poster

You will receive an email when we receive your poster proposal with more information about submitting your poster for judging. Your completed poster, in PDF format, will be due on March 28, 2014.
A group of judges will select the finalists in advance of the event using the PDFs of your posters. The Grand Prize winner will be selected from the group of finalists on April 24, the day of the event.
Posters will be judged on:
• How well and appropriately you use MSI resources,
• The scientific merit of your research
