Bill Wood Graduate Student Talk Award

Calling all graduate students! Submit a short talk abstract (above) to be considered for the Bill Wood Graduate Student Talk Award.

As this award was not given in 2020, multiple awards will be given in 2021. This year all current graduate students and individuals who were graduate students in July 2020 who give a short talk at SABER will be considered for the award

All graduate students who submit an abstract for a short talk as first author are automatically considered for the Bill Wood Award. The Abstract Committee reviews all abstracts submitted and selects those to be presented as short talks at the SABER meeting using the published evaluation criteria. The Bill Wood Award Committee then attends each graduate student first-authored short talk at the meeting and selects the winners. Winners will be presented a monetary award. 

Specific rubric for talk evaluations will be posted in April.
