The ARL Summer Student Research Symposium is an ARL Directors Award Program for all the students participating in various summerscholarship and contract activities across ARL. The goal of the program is to recognize and publicize exceptional achievements made bythe students and their mentors in the support of Army science.All college undergraduate and graduate students receiving research appointments and conducting summer studies at ARL are automaticallyenrolled in the symposium program. As an integral part of their summer study, all students are required to write a paper on their workwhich summarizes their major activity and its end product. The program is conducted on two separate competitive levels undergraduate and graduate. The format of the paper in both levels is thesame. However, the evaluation will take into consideration the difference in the academic level of the students. All students submitted their research paper for directorate review. Directorate judging panels selected one or two papers from eachcompetition category for the laboratory-wide competition at the Summer Student Symposium on 7 August 2008. Students selected by their directorate for competition participated in the one-day Summer Student Symposium on 7 August 2008. At thesymposium the students presented their papers to the ARL Director and an ARL Fellows panel.
