MaD2019: Student Innovation Showcase

Happy Hour: Let’s all talk together – students, industry and academics

This Pop-up one hour exhibition provides students with the opportunity to explain their work through physical demonstrations, samples or exhibits; plus to strike up conversations with and gain feedback from industry, academics and fellow student delegates at MaD2019.

Guidelines

  • It will be a show-and-tell form of conversational presentation, with delegates mingling freely in the conference exhibition area.
  • Students should bring their demonstration/sample/exhibit (e.g. 3D print/object, etc.) to MaD2019 and set it up in the designated exhibition area.
  • Set-up time is strictly from 5.00 to 5.30pm on Monday 20 May.
  • Pack-down time is strictly as dinner starts and by 7.30pm latest on Monday 20 May.
  • Generally the demonstrations/samples/exhibits will be small enough for students to bring with them. They should be self-contained and should take no longer than 30 minutes to set up. Ideally they would just need to be placed on the table.
  • Students must register their intention to present their work on the Expression of Interest (EOI) submission form. Additional information and specifications are detailed on this form.
  • Students who have already submitted an oral/poster abstract may submit a demonstration/sample/exhibit for the Happy Hour in addition to their oral or poster. This is encouraged as the physical demonstration may further communicate qualities and ideas.
  • All EOI submissions for the MaD2019 Happy Hour must be made by Friday 29 March, with notification by early April.
  • Accepted submissions must be printed by the presenter as part of the exhibit label. Demonstration space will be allocated.
  • Students who have their submissions accepted will be expected to register to attend the conference. The Early Bird deadline for registration is 5 April 2019. Standard Registration closes on 1 May 2019.
  • There will be a single, BEST Innovation Showcase Prize valued at $300 and three Highly Commended Prizes valued at $75 each. All prizes will be announced during the MaD2019 Closing Ceremony on Tuesday 21 May 2019.
