Submit Abstract through the conference
The abstract is a brief, concise summary of the intent and conclusions
of your presentation. Maximum length of an abstract is 150 words.
Do not include figures, tables or illustrations in the abstract.
Please type your abstract in Word, single-spaced. Complete spell
& grammar check. Use word-count to reduce to 150 words. Finally,
copy-&-paste the abstract into the indicated box.
Upload your abstract when you register for the conference. Fill in the
boxes with the complete information, including the name of your faculty
sponsor and presentation title.
DESIGNATE ONE member of the group to submit the abstract. That
person will enter the names of ALL the other members of the group
in the designated box. ALL other members of the group must register
for the conference individually, indicate they are a member of a
group presentation, and enter the name of the faculty sponsor and
presentation so all names will appear on the program.
Guidelines For Presentations
Presentations are limited to no more than 15 minutes (plus a 5 minute
Q&A). A session moderator introduces each participant. A timekeeper
is responsible for ensuring the time schedule is maintained. Student
presenters must present at the beginning of the session or they may
not be allowed to speak. The program will be established approximately
10 days prior to the conference and no changes will be made one the
program is complete. Any scheduling requests or requests for special
accommodations must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the conference.
Presenters should dress professionally.
Each presentation room is equipped with a computer, projector, lectern,
and a table. We cannot accommodate personal laptops for the presentations
so be prepared to load your materials to the computer in the room.
If you have any equipment requests or require accommodations, please
contact the conference coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org at
least 2 weeks prior to the conference.
