Welcome, students!  The OSPA process is a wonderful opportunity to engage with scientists, discuss your work, and be provided with feedback regarding your presentation skills.  Students who indicated during the abstract submission process that they wished to be considered for the award can sign in at the right to confirm their participation.  Students cannot be added after the abstract submission deadline.
