Students: Make the Most of Your Time in Vancouver!

Career Panel

Students and young professionals, this is a valuable opportunity to learn from professionals in the industries. Speakers will give short presentations about their professional development journeys and will be available to answer questions from the audience. The panel is organized by the Student Committee.

The Mentor Program

The Mentor Program is the cornerstone of the Nano Division’s Leadership Council’s commitment to improving networking and career development opportunities for nanotechnology students. The Mentor Program matches students with a mentor in the industry/academia/government sector that can help them not only make the most of their conference experience, but also serve as an advisor throughout their studies and career developments. 

Student Rapid-Fire

Organized by the TAPPI Nano Student Committee, the Rapid‐Fire Session will allow students to share a brief summary of their Poster presentation! In this session, each student will have 3 minutes to give a brief description of their project, depiction of their findings and a summary of their results. As the name suggests, each student will present in “rapid‐fire” succession to allow all students the opportunity to share their research.

Student Booth

Students, you’re invited to stop by the Student Booth at any point during the conference. This is a great opportunity to learn from Student Committee members about the Committee and its activities. Student presenters will be spotlighted here, too.  

Spotlight on Student Presenters

Stop by the Nano Division Student committee table to see student presenters featured at this year’s conference. A looping presentation will feature student bios, photos, and key points about their presentations.

Student Poster Session Competition

The student poster session is your opportunity to display your research work in poster format. The session is an ideal setting for conference attendees to view your work in an informal and conversational setting. Students are present to discuss their work. Posters are judged by conference attendees and the top-ranking posters are eligible for prizes.
