Science Lifts the LightScientists, engineers, and students will convene in Kansas City, Missouri, October 22–25 for Sigma Xi’s 2015 Annual Meeting and Student Research Conference. If you aren’t attending, you can follow both events on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #SigmaXimtg.

The Annual Meeting includes leadership development workshops for chapter officers, a professional research poster session, caucus meetings, governance decisions, and a breakfast to welcome new members to the Society.

The Student Research Conference is an opportunity for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to present their research for evaluation by professional researchers and to network with graduate school recruiters and potential employers. Side-by-side with professional researchers, students attend lectures by Sigma Xi’s award winners, career development workshops, and Science Cafés. Students who rank as superior presenters in the conference receive a nomination to join Sigma Xi and are inducted at the conclusion of the meeting.
