Welcome, students! The OSPA process is a wonderful opportunity to engage with scientists, discuss your work, and be provided with feedback regarding your presentation skills. Students who indicated during the abstract submission process that they wished to be considered for the award can sign in at the right to confirm their participation. Students cannot be added after the abstract submission deadline.

Students must confirm their participation byFriday, 13 March, 2015 at 11:59 P.M. EST. Students who do not confirm their participation will be deleted from the system thereafter.

If you do not wish to participate or cannot agree to the Honor Code, you do not need to contact AGU. You will automatically be deleted from the system after 13 March, 2015.
