The objective of the student poster contest is to recognize superior research in the field of Industrial Ecology and encourage the active participation of Industrial Ecology students.

Photos from the conference are also now available.
Doctoral Tutorial Session
The 'Doctoral Tutorial Session' was held in conjunction with the GRC short courses.
The session was split into two main sections:
Section (1) Beginning the journey through graduate school as an IEer
for 1st through 2nd year graduate students interested in general grad school topics
Graduate students currently enrolled in IE programs will provide an overview of what is expected from you through your journey as a Masters/PhD student in the field of IE. Get some advice from the elders - how to balance your time, what's involved in generating a proposal/thesis/papers & taking your Qualifying exams. Get answers to your questions! This section will focus on discussion between the audience and panelists, who will entertain any questions/ comments you may have (Q&A session)
Section (2) Presentation practice with constructive feedback
for graduate students wanting feedback on proposals or research plans
If you have a draft proposal or initial research plan, this session will allow you to get feedback from a panel of ISIE members. Students can sign up for the opportunity to informally present (10-15 min. presentations) their research in a nonstressful and casual environment to a small panel of ISIE members who have a background in the student's field of interest. This is a great opportunity to receive feedback on your current research and formulate future goals!!!
A Student Chapter resume book was available at the registration area.
