Approximately 20 percent of the US population lives in rural areas where a shrinking population base and shifting demographics have resulted in a need to travel farther to reach destinations and services such as shopping, healthcare, etc. Individuals living in these rural areas rely on technology and public transportation to maintain connections to regional centers and the global economy. At the same time, an increasing number of seniors choosing to “age in place” in rural areas. Given the emergence of new technology, changes in demographics, shifts in population, and economic and environmental trends, what can public transportation do to better connect communities? What do you think public transportation and intercity bus service will look like in 2050?

The Poster Competition provides students an opportunity to showcase their research for all conference attendees. The Poster Session is open for any undergraduate student to present results from projects that they have carried out as undergraduate researchers at their university or during internships/co-ops. The Poster Session covers all key areas of chemical engineering, including sustainability, catalysis and reaction engineering, computing and process control, environmental aspects of chemical engineering, food, pharmaceutical, bioengineering, fuels, petrochemicals, energy, materials, and separations.
If you have any question about which topical area is best for your poster, please consult with your advisor/supervisor/co-authors. For topic selection, focus on the nature of the work that was done, not on pie-in-the-sky applications. For example, fundamental research into new polymeric materials should be submitted to the “Materials” topical area, even if the ultimate applications may be for novel drink bottles, which may suggest “Food”. Only if no topical area seems particularly appropriate for capturing a substantial portion of your work, you may submit it to the “General” topic area as last resort.
You are responsible for printing the poster and bringing it to the conference. Your poster must fit in a space of 4 ft wide by 3 ft high, which is the anticipated size of the poster boards. Any posters, visual aids etc. should all fit in the space provided. Board and tacks will be provided for each poster.

General Rules and Considerations:
The competition will consist of two rounds: the preliminary round and the championship round. The winner from each game during the preliminary round will advance to the championship round. The winner of the championship round will automatically qualify for the national competition held at the Annual Student Conference. The structure of both rounds is similar, except that the championship round consists of double Jeopardy, whereas the preliminary round does not. Here’s what you need to know about the structure of the games.
Single and Double Jeopardy
