Student Program

ELEVATE - Student Program

Our student attendees are the future of our conference and our field of research.  ELEVATE Program organizers have curated an array of activities encompassing not only conference specific training, but ongoing career guidance and networking opportunities with seasoned members of our research and industry partners. ASC’22 encourages all students to attend the ELEVATE sessions held over the lunch hour. For each session a student attends, their name will be placed into a random drawing for three PC laptops. The laptops will be awarded after the Friday plenary session.
