2021 Abstract Submissions
If you wish to present a poster, presentation, creative exhibition or performance, follow the directions below to submit an abstract before Oct. 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Please click on the Abstract Submission Portal to submit your document. Learn more about what’s expected when submitting an abstract with the SNCURCS Abstract Guidelines.
What is an abstract?
An abstract is a concise paragraph summary of your research project or creative work totaling 250 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 itself should not include the title of your project, or any names and references. That information will be provided elsewhere.
What do I need to submit an abstract?
In the Abstract Submission Portal, you will be asked to provide your name and email address, as well as names of any co-presenters (up to 3, if applicable), your mentor’s contact information, your presentation title, and 250-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 during the abstract submission process.
Only one abstract per person will be accepted. If on a team, one abstract will be accepted for the project. Co-presenters / team members should not submit separate abstracts. When you submit an abstract, you will be given the opportunity to list the names of all co-presenters / team members.
How do I submit an abstract?
Use the Abstract Submission Portal to submit your abstract. It is highly recommended that you look at the SNCURCS Abstract Guidelines before beginning your submission. This will give you a chance to see step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the submission process.
When do I have to submit my abstract?
The final deadline to submit your abstract is Oct. 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Mentor approval must be completed by Oct. 18, 2021 at 11:59 pm. Do not wait to start your abstract submission on Oct. 15 or you may miss the cut off. Abstracts that are not approved by the mentor will not be able to be presented.
Does my abstract have to be approved by my mentor?
Yes, your abstract submission will not be accepted without mentor approval. A request to approve the abstract will be sent automatically to your mentor (response due Oct 18), 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.
