ICDS Virtual Symposium 2020

Virtual Poster Session

All activities to take place virtually. You must register to have access to the links.

The ICDS Symposium will include a virtual poster session prior to the October 21st and 22nd event.

Virtual Poster Session Format

To adapt to an appropriate virtual format for the poster session, we are requiring all submitters to resubmit their poster with embedded audio narration, which can be done within Microsoft PowerPoint. ICDS will post these videos a week prior to the Symposium to give judges time to evaluate them, then ICDS will announce the winners at the Symposium. For more information about poster formatting requirements, refer to our submission form and Microsoft’s documentation on embedding audio in PowerPoint.


Anyone who submitted a poster that was accepted for the March 2020 event will be contacted about their submission and given options to update their poster with added audio or withdraw.


Two graduate students will be awarded cash prizes of $500 for 1st prize and $200 for 2nd prize.**
