  • Q: What kind of research is needed?
    • A: 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.
  • Q: How recent does my research need to be?
    • A: It needs to be within the last four years
  • Q: What format will the presentation be in?
    • A: Poster presentation (36x48 inches, trifold — will need to be able to stand on own)
  • Q: 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.
