US HUPO is committed to providing learning and presentation opportunities to the community of junior researchers and trainees.
Enhanced Opportunities to Present Your Research at a National Meeting
- Lightning Talks - two general sessions will feature talks selected from poster presenters.
- Tips & Tricks Talks - a general session featuring innovative technology developments (calling all McGyver and Inspector Gadget types).
Special Workshops in San Diego
- Career development workshop where you can discover the upside (and downside) of different career paths (industrial, government and academic)
Free Membership for Students and Post-Docs after paying for one year
- Students and post-docs pay dues for one year only and then all subsequent years their membership is renewed at no cost (free!) until their status changes. See Membership page for more details.
A "Best Poster" award is given in two categories: Best Student Poster and Best Post-Doc Poster. If you are interested in being considered, please indicate your preference during the online abstract submission process.
A limited number of student travel stipends (up to $500 each) are available to full-time graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Applicants must submit an abstract and live outside the San Diego area. Only one student per research group can be funded unless there are unused funds.
Travel Stipend Application deadline is December 12, 2016
