CIRI Maritime Risk Symposium (MRS 2020) Student Posters Opportunity

CIRI Maritime Risk Symposium (MRS 2020) Student Posters Opportunity

September 15, 2020
Other Opportunities



The 2020 Maritime Risk Symposium invites university and college students from throughout the United States and allied nations to participate in this year’s Maritime Risk Symposium Poster Competition.

The theme of this year’s Maritime Risk Symposium is “Resiliency.” While we invite applicants to submit research presentations that address this theme, we do not exclude research submissions that address other areas in the maritime domain.  

Submissions will use the presentation template found in Box. All submissions (filled-in template posters) must be uploaded to the MRS EasyChair submission site no later than midnight, September 15, 2020.

Authors of accepted posters are invited to attend the 2020 Maritime Risk Symposium, to be held October 27-29, 2020, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Of the top five poster submissions, one author from each team will receive an all-expense paid trip to the Symposium to present to its conference attendees.

Questions may be submitted to Maritime-Poster@uh.edu.
