Student Program

The PANIC05 student program is intended to provide an enhanced conference experience for undergraduate and graduate students. Students will have the opportunity to present their research in a poster session to the larger professional community and to one another.

Students will attend the full conference. Events will include a dedicated poster session for the presentation of student research, introductions to hot topics discussed at the meeting, opportunities to converse with other students, faculty, and senior scientists, and other activities scheduled throughout the meeting to benefit undergraduate and graduate students.

The application deadline for a waiver of the conference fee and lodging costs has passed. Students who applied before the deadline will be notified of their awards by September 2, 2005.
However, registered students still are eligible for the special student registration fee and access to student housing

Enrollment in a course of undergraduate or graduate study in physics or a related field. Students requesting a waiver of the entire conference registration fee and/or housing costs must present their work in a regular oral or poster session, or at the special student poster session.
