Virtual Poster Showcase

Virtual Poster Showcase (VPS) is a guided peer-review process and online presentation competition for Earth and space science students.

The Fall 2019 Showcase is now open!  Abstracts will be due 1 October.




VPS Allows Students To:

  • Practice presenting the relevancy and value of their research data
  • Dedicate time to focus on enhancing (if not creating) their abstract and poster
  • Experience the peer-review process in a low-pressure environment
  • Connect with other like-minded students and experts from around the globe

VPS Showcases annually in the Spring and Fall and are broken into Undergraduate and Graduate level competitions.

Students Will:

  • Gain valuable feedback on their research and presentation from peers and experts
  • Expand their network
  • Receive a certificate of participation
  • Gain citations for their abstract (and CV) — automatically included in AGU’s archive and AGI’s GeoRef – the most comprehensive bibliographic database in the geosciences with over 4 Million references
  • First prize winners will receive funding toward travel and accommodations, and registration to Fall Meeting 2020.
