What is a Scientific Student Conference

A scientific conference is a meeting of scientists where they present their work, can broaden their knowledge about a certain topic and exchange ideas. A student conference means that students will be the ones that will present their work. During this conference there are awards for the students with the best poster and presentation. On top of the scientific part of the conference there are also other activities organized, such as a student party.
