NEEPS prides itself on being a society that welcomes and supports students. Undergraduate and graduate students frequently present both posters and oral presentations.

At the conference, the various events and networking opportunities encourage faculty and students to interact with each other building a community that is not segregated by career stage.

Additionally, NEEPS organizes networking opportunities specifically for students. At the 2016 NEEPS conference in Halifax, students were able to attend a happy hour with the keynote speakers to give them an opportunity to talk to them in a low-pressure situation.

Check back on this page for the student events for the 2017 conference.

If you have any questions about the conference (i.e., what is necessary for submitting an abstract, what is the NEEPS experience like for students, advice on transportation and lodging, etc.) please contact the student representative: Stacey Makhanova (
