Frams 2018

We hope to see you at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs for the 4th FRAMS! This single-session, one-day symposium will feature talks and poster sessions. The tradition has been for students to deliver posters and other researchers to give talks. As with the previous 3 symposia in this series, the registration will be free! Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided. Please contact with any questions.


A tentative schedule for FRAMS 2018 (revised on Wednesday August 22) can be found here. Registration and breakfast starts at 8:15am. Talks will be 14 minutes long with 4 minutes afterwards for questions. The time limit for talks will be strictly adhered to, in order to allow plenty of time for discussions. Posters will be split into two sessions: - All odd-numbered posters will be presented and judged in the morning. - All even-numbered posters will be judged in the afternoon. However, presenters are encouraged to have their posters hanging all day. Posters may be hung up during registration/breakfast. Cork boards measure approximately 3 ft x 4 ft but there is no restriction on poster size. Poster prizes worth $200 each will be given directly to students by Princeton Instruments. The Best Poster Awards went to: ​​Alexandra Stuart, UCCS Aaron Wang, UW Jinjun Ding, CSU Shane Allen, DU Gavin Hester, CSU
