ATTENTION: ALL presenters will be required to provide an abstract for their project.

ALL student participants will need to provide the following during online registration:

  • Your name and names of co-authors (if applicable)
  • Contact information
  • Title of research project
  • Abstract (250 word maximum)
  • Preferred presentation format
  • Name, department, and contact info for your research advisor (This is who advised your research, not your academic advisor)
  • Abstract must be reviewed and approved by your research advisor
  • Honors students interested in being considered for Honors College Awards will simply need to check the appropriate box on the submission form.

Students may submit up to two research projects as first or sole author. If two projects are submitted then the presentations must be different formats: one oral and one poster. It is allowable, however, for a student to be listed as a secondary (or tertiary, etc.) author on multiple presentations in any format.

Students presenting an art piece or creative work should submit an artist statement as their abstract. This “artist statement” should include: (1) the purpose of the art project, (2) the mediums used, (3) any inspiration you had in creating and designing the art, and (4) a reflection on new skills learned while creating the piece. Also, students submitting an art piece should select Creative Arts as their presentation choice in the submission system
