Student Poster Competition

IC-IMPACTS has launched a Student Poster Competition for the Centre’s 2017 Research Conference.  The conference will be held June 9 & 10, 2017 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.

All students on IC-IMPACTS projects are invited to submit e-Posters showcasing their research.  The competition is a great chance to gain more research exposure and network with other students and researchers!

For details on what to submit, please view the guidelines below.

Competition Prizes


All e-posters will be published on the IC-IMPACTS website.  Students will get an amazing opportunity for their research to be viewed by academia, industry, government, and communities across Canada and India.


Students of the Top 15 posters will be supported to attend the 2017 IC-IMPACTS Research Conference.  Their posters will be printed and they will have an opportunity to engage conference attendees with their poster during an open Q&A session on June 9, 2017. Their poster abstracts will also be included in the publication of the conference proceedings.


Students of the Top 6 posters will also be invited to give an oral presentation of their research to the entire conference audience on June 9, 2017.  Their presentations will be evaluated and the best presenter will be awarded a prize.
