NIST Sigma Xi Postdoc Poster Presentation

The NIST Chapter of Sigma Xi invites all Postdoctoral Fellows to present a poster on their scientific research to their NIST coworkers and friends. Guest Researchers who have received their advanced degree in the last five years are also welcome to participate. All of the participating Postdocs and Guest Researchers will be invited to the Awards Reception where the most outstanding posters will be announced.

If you would like to support our postdocs and guest researchers through this event, consider joining the PPP Organizing Committee.

The NIST Chapter of Sigma Xi invites all NIST staff to join us for the Twenty-Third Annual NIST Sigma Xi Postdoctoral Poster Presentation (PPP). The PPP will take place on Friday, February 19th, 2016 in Lecture Rooms A and B and in the adjoining hallway in the Administration Building (Building 101). There will be two sessions: Session I (9:00 am to noon) featuring categories E (Engineering), M (Materials), and P (Physics); and Session II (1:00 pm to 4:00 pm) featuring categories B (Biology), C (Chemistry), T (Biotechnology), and Y (Polymers).  Refreshments will be provided during both sessions. Please take this opportunity to meet NIST's newest researchers and to learn about the excellent work that they are doing.
