Rapid Fire Showcase

The Rapid Fire Showcase gives you the opportunity to summarize the research you are working on. Attendees interested in subjects presented during the rapid-fire oral session can visit the accompanying poster and have a more in-depth discussion with the rapid-fire presenters during the student poster session and competition. This format offers greater exposure to presenters, as well as gives attendees a snapshot into the wide variety of research being conducted in the biorefinery arena.
