Call for submissions

Participants in the Master of Science (MSc) and Doctoral (PhD) programs at JMSB are invited to present their original research to the academic and business communities. The purpose of the exposition is to showcase the type and scope of research done at the JMSB and to help students achieve recognition, obtain feedback, and enhance their chances of success in academia or industry.

The exposition uses a “Poster” format where excellence of research and presentation are top priority. Winners of cash prizes for “Best Posters” at each of the MSc and PhD level will be determined by independent judges representing the academic and business communities.
