Abstract: Instructions & Submission

An abstract is a brief summary of a presenter's research, scholarly work, or creative activity. An abstract succinctly covers the main points of a presentation and varies somewhat depending on the discipline. Submitted abstracts will be read and evaluated by scholars in their fields, so presenters should consult with their mentors concerning discipline-appropriate formats. Text of your abstract is 300 words maximum.

Abstract Submission

The abstract submission deadline is October 9, 2013. Be sure to Register before November 23, 2013
