The AAS annual conference is a chance for students to present their research, learn about recent research in the field, receive invaluable skills training, hear presentations of interest to students, and network with world-renowned researchers and clinicians. The 46th AAS Annual Conference will be held April 24th-27st, 2013 at the Hilton Austin in Austin, Texas.
Please check our Facebook page set up specifically for students to find out more information about the conference, getting to and from, etc.
Each year, two student awards are given at the annual conference. The first, the Morton M. Silverman Student Award, recognizes an outstanding paper written by a student on a topic directly related to the field of suicidology. Congratulations to the winner of the Silverman Student Award for 2012, Erin F. Ward-Ciesielski.
The second award given is the Student Poster Award, which recognizes an excellent student-authored poster presented at the conference. There is no specific application for this award. All posters that are accepted for presentation are judged during the poster session at the conference. Posters are eligible for this award if a student is listed as the first author. Congratulations to the 2012 winner of the Student Poster Award, Ryan Horgan.
In 2012, AAS also held a student research proposal competition for the first time. Proposals were due prior to the conference, and the winner had conference registration fees waived and was presented with a certificate. The winner of this competition for 2012 was Jess MacIntyre.
