Inaugural Poster Session

QSC Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Association Now Accepting Abstracts

The Quantum Science Center’s Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Association (PGA) will host its first poster session virtually on Thursday, March 4 from 3 to 6 p.m. EST. All postdoctoral associates and graduate students connected to the QSC who fill out the abstract submission form by Friday, February 12 will be eligible to present their work at this event.

QSC members interested in attending the poster presentations should fill out a separate registration form. Presenters and other attendees will receive additional instructions on how to navigate iSeeVC, which will serve as the meeting space for the event. The deadline for registration and for presenters to upload their posters to iSeeVC is Friday, February 26.

Event organizers strongly encourage all QSC students and postdocs to register and submit abstracts that highlight their most recent work, but participants can also present previous research results that may be of interest to the QSC community. During the session, these early-career scientists and engineers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with potential collaborators, as well as to help showcase different aspects of the QSC’s wide-ranging research portfolio.

Each entrant will receive a certificate of participation, and a panel of judges will select one winner and two runners-up from the pool of competitors. The winners will be invited to present at the QSC director’s meeting, and the posters that receive the highest scores will be featured on the QSC’s public-facing website and Twitter feed.

Although the poster session is not open to the public, it is free for QSC members to attend and supports the QSC’s efforts to foster the professional development of the next generation of quantum researchers.

The members of the PGA organizing committee are event chair Alexander Senichev, Xiaohui Xu, Zach Martin, Kiran Dixit, and Demid Sychev from Purdue University and Claire Marvinney, Yun-Yi Pai, and Paul Kairys from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
