Red Sock Awards Awarded to Best Snowbird Posters


DSWeb congratulates all the recipients of the Red Sock Awards. Red Sock Awards are awarded to best posters by graduate students or postdocs at SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems. Poster presentations are judged by the prize committee during both nights of the poster session. Usually four posters receive the honors, but due to excellent posters this year, there were five Red Sock Award Recipients. Jim Yorke presented all the awards which include a pair of red socks and a $100 monetary prize. In case you missed these wonderful posters, or if you want to remind yourself of their content, the awardees were gracious enough to share their posters with DSWeb. We also thank Ernest Barreto for sharing his pictures of the awards.
