ePosters representing work in the field of facility management (FM) and the built environment (BE) are invited from IFMA Foundation Accredited Degree Program (ADP) students and other FM/BE degree program students. The ePoster competition is an opportunity for students from around the world to gain international recognition by presenting their experiences with FM/BE projects from internship/coop projects or related research. The culmination of the IFMA Foundation’s ePoster competition takes place at IFMA’s World Workplace Conference and Expo and is hosted by the IFMA Foundation’s Facility Management Accreditation Commission (FMAC). 2014 is the sixth year the ePoster competition has been sponsored by the IFMA Foundation.
The author(s) of the winning ePoster will receive a certificate of recognition along with a travel and expense allowance, not to exceed US$1,500, to attend either the next EFMC conference or IFMA’s WWP and participate as a judge of that conference’s ePoster competition.

FAMU's First Solar Dok Installed
The FAMU Green Coalition, and Division of Architecture faculty advisor Olivier Chamel, recently installed the University's first Solar Dok -- a solar powered recharging station for laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Prof. Chamel noted, “The installation of a Solar Dok on campus is an interactive way to show students that solar energy is a reality and has concrete applications such as recharging portable devices. As we educate our students to become leaders, it is critical that they are exposed to and understand the role of renewable energy. Overall, it is about raising awareness.” The Solar Dok was funded by a grant from the Siemens Corporation and is located on the quadrangle.
