Poster Session

Undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs, extension educators, and faculty are encouraged to present posters at an in-person poster session focused on climate solutions. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the innovative interdisciplinary climate solutions projects occurring at Penn State. Share your climate-related work with a wide audience, including industry, government, NGOs, and academia.

The in-person poster sessions will occur on Tuesday, May 23 from 10:15–11 a.m. and again from 2–2:30 p.m. in Presidents Hall. Posters may remain up for the entire conference.

Students can attend the symposium at no cost.

Deadline: Posters must be registered by May 17, 2023, at 5 p.m.
