Instructions for Abstract Submission for Students by Research Advisors
Research advisors are required to submit abstracts for student researchers (undergraduate and graduate).  Abstracts must be submitted by use of the online Abstract Submission Form by December 31, 2016.  These abstracts will be reviewed for acceptance or non-acceptance for presentation.

Terms for Abstract Submission Process

1.  Primary Research Advisor:  the advisor (faculty or professional staff) responsible for leading and training a student in the conduct of research for this particular abstract submission.

 2.  Research Co-advisor:  any other advisor (faculty or professional staff) responsible for assisting in leading and training a student in the conduct of research for this particular abstract submission.

 3.  Student Author:  a student who has been named by the primary research advisor or research co-advisor as the writer of the research work (abstract and presentation).

 4.  Student Presenter:  a student who has been named by the primary research advisor or research co-advisor to present at the Symposium.  This student must be present, and will stand and deliver the oral presentation or the poster presentation, in full or in part.  There may be more than one presenter, yet all presenters must be designated during the abstract submission process.

 

Abstract Submission Form, Submission Process, and Abstract Review
The text of the abstract must be uploaded with the online Abstract Submission Form. The abstract text should not exceed 300 words. The abstract can include the following information – hypothesis or theory, objectives, design, materials and methods, results, conclusion(s), and source(s) of financial support, if applicable.

The process for submitting an abstract is single-submission, that is, only one abstract is to be submitted for each presentation.  Double-submission of an abstract is not acceptable.  Double-submission refers to submitting an abstract for an oral presentation and then submitting the same abstract [in title, author(s), and content] for a poster presentation.

 Student research abstract submissions will undergo a review process for acceptance or non-acceptance for presentation.
