Attention Students and Advisors

Any student who submits an abstract by April 30th can be eligible to win the Best Student Oral Presentation Award or a Best Student Poster Presentation Award at the 2013 SIMB Annual Meeting.

Each of the 6 winners (1 for oral presentation and 1 each for posters in each of the core areas) receives a certificate and a $500 cash award.

The 5 core areas are:

  • Biocatalysis
  • Environmental Microbiology
  • Fermentation & Cell Culture
  • Metabolic Engineering
  • Natural Products

Students participating in the Best Student Poster Presentation competition will be judged onsite during the hours of presentation, either Sunday, Aug 11 or Monday, Aug 12. Each 3-hour poster session will be divided into two 1-1/2 hour periods, depending upon topic. Awardees will be notified prior to the banquet and should plan to attend the banquet to receive their check and certificate.

Abstract Submission

Abstracts must have the student as the lead/presenting author and must describe research substantially conducted by this student. Note: Students who won the competition last year are not eligible for consideration for the 2012 session.

On the SIMB abstract form, check the box indicating student status AND on the box indicating that the abstract should also be evaluated for inclusion in the Student Oral Presentation Session.

Abstracts must be submitted by April 30 in order to be considered for this special session. Notification of status will be made in late May.
