May 15 @ 11:45 pm

SusTech 2015 invites undergraduate students to submit abstracts for the Student Poster Contest.

Students are invited to send in ideas or designs for developing projects/products supporting the sustainability topics areas of the Conference. The selected posters will be displayed during the SusTech 2015 Student Poster Session, being held in the greater Salt Lake City area, in Ogden, Utah, USA.

The deadline to submit poster abstracts is midnight US Mountain Time, May 15, 2015.
Notification of acceptance will be June 1.


Poster authors must be undergraduate students at the time of submission and may be members of a team comprising of up to four students. At least one student author must be an IEEE student member at the time of the submission of the poster to the Contest. The poster should be fully the work of the student or students and completed before they have received the engineering or scientific degree.


To participate in the contest students should write a 2-page description (abstract) of the poster and submit it using theapplication form below by the specified deadline. The abstracts will be reviewed and authors notified by June 1st if they will be presenting at SusTech. If you have any questions or problems submitting your abstract, contact Dan Donahoe, SusTech 2015 chair, Contestants will need to prepare a poster of no larger than 48 x 36 inches.
