Submit an Abstract

2019 Abstract Submission


Abstract Submission to Present:

If you wish to present a poster, presentation, creative exhibition, or performance, follow the directions below to submit an abstract before October 25, 2019 at 5pm (this is the final extension!).  Please click on the ABSTRACT SUBMISSION PORTAL link below to submit your document.

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 paragraph should not include the title of your project, or any names and references. That information will be provided elsewhere. SNCURCS Abstract Guidelines

WHAT DO I NEED TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT? 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 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 in 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 do not need to 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 link listed below in RED that says “Abstract Submission.” It is highly recommended that you consult the SNCURCS  Abstract Submission Walkthrough 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.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO SUBMIT MY ABSTRACT? The FINAL deadline to submit your abstract is October 25th at 5pm. Mentor Approval must be completed by October 30.  DO NOT wait to start your abstract submission on the 25th 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, 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.


Abstract Submission portal will close at 5:00 PM on October 25, 2019 (no additional extensions will be permitted). 

Once your abstract is submitted, please proceed to the SNCURCS Registration page.
