This email is to recognize the achievement of one or more of your student(s) at the 2016 Quadrennial Physics Congress (PhysCon) held November 3-5, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.
Your student(s) were awarded the highly competitive Optical Society of America (OSA) Best Poster Awards which recognizes the excellence of their research and presentation skills. Thanks to generous sponsorship from OSA, this award comes with $200 and a certificate of achievement.
The poster sessions at this year’s PhysCon were the largest in the event’s history, featuring over 360 student presentations. We were thrilled to have your students’ participation and know that this work would not have been possible without your mentorship and support. Thank you for supporting their work and active engagement with SPS!
As 2016 comes to a close, we want to remind you of several other benefits offered to students in SPS:
