[Geodynamics] Looking for OSPA judges

Dear friends,

I am reaching out to ask that you volunteer to judge student presentations during the AGU Tectonophysics session - Intracontinental Deformation: From the Surface to the Upper Mantle (T33, T34, T37 & T38). The success of the Outstanding Student Presentation Awards relies on the quality of the volunteers. It would be great if you could judge one or more presentations.

The sign-up to judge is below, and the judging can be done on your mobile device during the meeting or online at a later time.

How to sign up for presentations

  • Visit the OSPA website and click on “VOLUNTEER” to register

  • Use the email address and password associated with your AGU membership to log in.

  • Read through the Rules of Contest and click “Agree.” Click “Next” and repeat with the Conflict of Interest and Agreement to Participate pages to enter the Judge Showcase.

  • Inside the Showcase, view all available presentations or filter by Section, Session Title, and Abstract Keyword to search for specific presentations.

  • Add presentations to your list by selecting “Read More” under the presentation. Once the entire abstract loads, click “Add to my List.”

  • To view your selected presentations, or to evaluate them, click on the Judge Portal link in the upper right of the Showcase. Note: Evaluation forms will not appear until 1 December. Evaluation forms must be submitted by 30 December for all assigned presentations.

Responsibilities as an OSPA Judge

  • Evaluate all presentations you volunteered to judge during Fall Meeting. Evaluating a presentation requires about 15-20 minutes, including submitting scores. For only an hour of time at Fall Meeting, volunteer judges can provide feedback to 3 student presenters.
  • Submit scores, either in real time on a tablet or mobile device, or take notes while you evaluate students and enter the scores online no later than Wednesday, 30 December 2020.

Best regards,
