Student Day 2022
All plasma physics undergrad and graduate students we would like to invite you to Student Day 2022!
Student Day is a ½ day event planned by students for students on Sunday, October 16 from 1:00PM –
6:00PM, before the APS DPP annual meeting in Spokane.
Since its inception in 2019, Student Day has grown every year to ~70 students in 2021.
Student Day was created with the dual purpose of preparing students for the science of DPP and to create
an opportunity for students to meet each other and foster a welcoming community.
Student Day is targeted towards all levels of students, from incoming or early graduate students who are
still learning about our field to more advanced students who are interested in communicating their
research in low-stakes and often non-traditional manner. To do this, Student Day is roughly split 50/50
between review talks and community-building activities such as Science Games, Lightning-Talks, and a
Mental Health panel.
We are currently soliciting talks which any student (or recent graduate) can sign up for at this link
. We are looking for 3-minute thesis style presentations, 5–7-minute lightning (or
humorous) talks, and 10-minute research presentations on a plasma-related topic.
Registration for Student Day is $25 when registering for the annual meeting and includes dinner and
snacks. Please note that if you cannot arrive on October 16 due to flights, we encourage you to arrive a
day early if possible!
We look forward to meeting you!
