FAQ

  • What kind of research is needed?
    • The work needs to forward knowledge in the field in a distinct way. Not just a synthesis of existing research, but a synthesis that moves an idea forward with a new conceptual contribution.
  • How recent does my research need to be?
    • It needs to be within the last four years
  • If I am presenting with others, does each person need to submit an application?
    • No, each person does not need to submit an application. Only one person per group/presentation needs to submit the application.
