The OSM Student Paper Evaluation Program allows student presenters to hone their presentation skills and receive valuable feedback from esteemed scientists. The program relies on anonymous volunteers who visit a student’s poster or oral presentation and engage them in order to help provide feedback about a student’s research and communication skills.


  • Undergraduate, master’s, and doctorate student first authors select interest in participating during the abstract submission process
  • Liaisons are assigned to each session and help secure judges during the session submission process
  • Students confirm participation in the Presenter’s Corner. Deadline extended to 16 January 2018
  • Non-student members sign up to judge a minimum of three student presentations in the online system starting in mid January 2018
  • At OSM, students give oral presentations or remain by their poster during their selected time slot in order to explain their research to passersby
  • Anonymous volunteers engage with students to assess their presentation skills
  • Evaluators submit feedback by 25 February 2018
  • All students are provided feedback in March 2018
