The American Geophysical Union (AGU) announced the registration and abstract submission period is open for the Fall 2017 Virtual Poster Showcase (VPS). Traditionally, some students are unable to participation in traditional conferences due to timing or financial constraints and missing out on valuable resume building experience. VPS was launched as a way to give all students the opportunity to present their research to the broader scientific community via a virtual platform. AGU is also seeking volunteers to help judge the competition. The deadline to participate is September 30, 2017. Read past Geotimes Posts on the Virtual Poster Showcase here.
