Student  Talks

The Students With A Passion for Astronomy program (SWAPA) has provided an excellent opportunity for young astronomers to make significant contributions. High school students and undergraduate students who are successful recipients of SWAPA scholarships can present on an area of personal interest or study for 5 and 10 minutes, respectively. This development allows students to showcase their passion for astronomy and share their knowledge with other attendees. Don't miss the chance to see these enthusiastic and talented students present at the conference!


We encourage all conference attendees to submit a poster on any relevant topic for display. The posters should be A1 in size and easily readable from an arm's length distance. If time permits, those presenting posters may be given a brief one-minute opportunity to introduce their poster at the podium. Don't miss the chance to share your research and ideas with fellow conference attendees through a poster presentation!
