      All students who have done research in math or science are encouraged to present a poster at the All Science and Math Poster Session.  Students should register by Wednesday, Oct 12 at  CISMI/HHMI will pay for poster printing at Carleton Printing and Mailing Services.  Students should have their posters to Printing and Mailing no later than Oct 19 to ensure printing will be completed by Oct 27. When giving the digital copy of the poster to Print Services indicate that the poster is for the Science and Math poster session, and the proper account will be billed.  Students are also invited to upload invited ( for our HHMI grant archives/data requests and various levels of public consumption, with faculty PI permission where proprietary concerns arise after the poster session is over.if you have any question, please contact Ellen Haberoth (ehaberot).

    • Carleton Student Symposium

      January 16, 2009

      Have you done physics or astronomy research you are dying to share? A group of students is organizing the first ever Carleton Student Symposium, where Carleton students are encouraged to present their research in all sorts of disciplines to other Carleton students. If you have something that you would like to present on the Saturday of midterm break, February 7, for 5-15 minutes, email for a spot. Topics should be made intelligible to a broad audience.

    • The All Science and Math Sigma Xi Poster Session is scheduled for Friday, October 24 in the Hulings Atrium. All students who did summer research at Carleton or elsewhere are strongly encouraged to make a poster and share their work with the science community.
