SHINE 2011 Student Announcements
Posted July 5th, 2011
Students are asked to provide a single slide summary of their posters to introduce themselves at SHINE. Examples of such a slide can be viewed below:
Rebekah Evans - Evans_SHINE2011_PosterSummary.pdf
Kamen Kozarev - shine2011_singleSlide_Kozarev.pdf
These slides will be used to introduce you during breakfast on student day and it will be used to announce your poster before the morning sessions during the week.

1) If you're planning to attend the meeting, please apply for financial support on the SHINE website: http://shinecon.org/shine2011/StudFinSupAppSub11.php
Once you're granted support, please register yourself: http://shinecon.org/shine2011/Registration2011.html
The registration deadline is June 9th, so please apply for funding and register in time.
2) As always, we need volunteers to give tutorials on student day.
Here are the topics:
The Inner and Outer Heliosphere;
Satellite missions and observations;
Magnetic Fields and the Solar Dynamo;
Turbulence and Reconnection;
Coronal Mass Ejections;
Flares and Chromospheric Activity;
Shocks and SEPs.
We would highly encourage the new students to pick up the introductory tutorials. This will be a great opportunity for you to review the relevant literature for your qualifiers, oral presentations etc. Please e-mail Rebekah (firstname.lastname@example.org) or myself (email@example.com) if you would like to volunteer for a specific topic. If you are interested in several topics that is fine, but we ask you to order them by preference.
We will be providing the volunteers with more information about their tutorials. For guidance, see several tutorials from last year here:
3) After the success of the splinter sessions in the afternoon of student day last year, we decided to have them again. We are soliciting topics and talks which we will organize into several topical sessions. Senior students, if you're planning to graduate soon and want to give a research talk for practice, please let us know in time. We will determine the topics based on your input, so let us know! The talks will be 15-20 minute long, similar to the regular SHINE talks.
4) We will be organizing a short introduction in the beginning of student day. We would like you all to prepare a one-slide intro to the talk or poster you will present at the conference including your name and picture. We will have people stand up and introduce themselves briefly (no more than 30 seconds), so we can get to know each other from the get go. The preferred slide format is here:
Also, the slides will be passed to the organizers of SHINE, and will be displayed in a slide show during breakfast all week long. So you will be preparing for that as well. We will remind you of this as the meeting approaches, in case you haven't yet finished the research you will present - I know I am nowhere near being done...
