Submit an Abstract

The Abstract Submission portal will close at 11:59 p.m. on October 12, 2016.


An abstract is a concise paragraph summary of your research project or creative work totaling 300 words or less. It should include your research question, a brief description of the methods used to explore that question, and the highlights of your results and conclusions. The abstract paragraph should not include the title of your project, or any names and references. That information will be provided elsewhere. SNCURCS Abstract Guidelines

If you wish to present a poster, presentation, creative exhibition, or performance, follow the directions below to submit an abstract before October 12, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. Only one abstract per person will be accepted.

It is highly recommended that you consult the SNCURCS Abstract Submission Preview BEFORE beginning your Abstract Submission. This will give you a chance to see step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the Abstract Submission portal. You may also save a copy of the preview so you can return to it during the submission process.

Once you begin the Abstract Submission process, you will receive a login and password from the site. Please use this login and password every time you return to the Abstract Submission portal. This will allow you to save your progress as you go, and prevent any duplicate submissions under your name.

In the Abstract Submission portal, you will be asked to provide your name and contact information, as well as the names of any co-presenters (if applicable), your mentor’s contact information, any assisting mentors, your presentation title, and 300-word abstract.

Students MUST identify a faculty mentor who will review and approve the abstract. Students must also identify correct contact information for themselves, co-presenters and faculty mentors. All communication between SNCURCS and participants will be conducted through the email addresses you provide in the Abstract Submission process.

Co-presenters do not need to submit separate abstracts.

Your abstract submission will not be accepted without mentor approval. A request to approve the abstract will be sent automatically to your mentor, so please check carefully to ensure that you have entered your mentor’s email address correctly.

Please make sure you proofread your Abstract Submission diligently for grammatical and spelling errors.
