Participants will compete in one of five categories, described below. Some of your work may fall into more than one of these categories, so please choose the category that you feel you align with most.

Posters that describe research involving technology as a content area (e.g. telecommunications, computer science, digital art, business information systems, etc.), utilizing technology in your research (e.g. data visualization, audio or visual technologies, data mining), and studying how people interact with technology (utilizing technology in the classroom, impact of technology on society, law and technology, etc.)
Volunteer to be a judge
Volunteer judges play a critical role in the competition by providing valuable feedback, insight, and an opportunity to help emerging researchers talk about their work. All judges will use a judging rubric that we provide. We welcome any IU faculty, staff, graduate student, or industry representative to serve as a judge.
