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 wish to receive feedback and be considered for the award can sign in to confirm their participation in OSPA. Please note: only students who indicated their interest in participating in OSPA during the abstract submission process were uploaded into the OSPA platform. If you did not indicate your interest, but are interested in participating, contact us immediately.

Students must confirm their participation by 30 October 2017. No late confirmations will be permitted.

If you do not wish to participate or cannot agree to the Honor Code, you do not need to contact AGU. You will automatically not be included in the OSPA program if you do not confirm your participation by 30 October 2017.

Honor Code

The purpose of the OSPA Honor Code is to establish rules and procedures of the American Geophysical Union governing student conduct with respect to the integrity of the Outstanding Student Paper Award program.  Students must agree to the following:

  • I am the first author of my presentation.
  • I am a student pursuing an undergraduate, Master’s or PhD degree.  Postdoctoral researchers may not participate.
  • I will not solicit personal nor professional contacts to serve as my judges.
