AAPT 2012 Student Poster Session

For the first time, the AAPT 2012 Annual Meeting and Technical Session included a Student Poster Session. This new program was a great success. There were 33 poster abstracts submitted and 15 were chosen to be presented. The posters were available throughout the 2012 Annual Meeting and Technical Sessions in Austin, Texas. The AAPT Student Poster Session is a valuable opportunity for student authors to present ongoing or completed research and meet with interested AAPT members for in-depth technical discussion. (Copies of the posters and abstracts are available by following the individual links below or all the abstracts can be viewed here.) The posters were judged by a selection of AAPT members and the winner was:

“Permeable Friction Courses: Case Studies in Texas”
by Divya Valluri, Lorena Garcia Cucalon; Texas A&M University

The 15 posters that were presented are:
