Student Poster Session Room TBD - 9:30am - 12:30pm For the first time, the Student Program will host a Poster Session for students to show off the work they have done. If you have been working on any type of project (research, a thesis, a ship design project, etc.) we want to see it! All that is required is that you bring a 4 foot by 5 foot poster describing your work. Pictures are always a great thing! The session will allow students and professionals to walk around, view your poster, and ask you any questions they September 2006 may have. Industry professionals will serve as judges and pick a winning poster from the session.
