Departments will identify and encourage students during the fall semester who have appropriate projects and would benefit from presenting at this all-campus event. Identification of students and preliminary submissions of project descriptions should occur by November 16, 2016, however, February 7, 2017 is the deadline for revisions to earlier submissions as well as new “late breaking” submissions.  Please contact a committee representative for more information. Each student submission must have a faculty supervisor who will verify the progress of the student and their participation in the conference at the start of the spring semester. Students will be able to present their projects in a manner consistent with their discipline and suited for their form of scholarship.
