SWIG calls for creative talent to illustrate technological developments

Posted: Tuesday 8th December 2009

The Sensors for Water Interest Group (SWIG) is calling for creative scientific minds to design a poster summarising their research in sensing the water environment. The SWIG Early Careers Researchers Prize aims to raise awareness of technological scientific developments and novel applications related to water sensor measurements.

SWIG is seeking competition entries from early career researchers in the water and environmental sectors, including students and graduates in the first four years of their careers.

All posters should relate to sensing the water environment but the subject may be theoretical or experimental, as long as it is based on original research and entries must be accompanied by a 150-word explanation.

Judges will be looking for scientific quality, originality, clarity of presentation, relevance to water sensors, well written work and a good use of photographs and illustrations.

Three posters will be shortlisted and their creators will be invited to a SWIG workshop where they will give a short presentation about their work. The overall winner will be selected by the SWIG board of directors and will receive 500. The winning poster will appear on the SWIG website and be circulated to all SWIG members.

The deadline for entries is 26 February 2010 and must be submitted in electronic format to SWIG. Further information about the competition can be found at www.swig.org.uk or from Linda.smith@swig.org.uk
