Abstract Guidance and Suggestions
Most Abstracts include the following elements:
If more than one student is working on a project, the primary presenter (oral or poster) will be the 1st Author on the project. Any other students can be entered as additional presenters.
During the submission process, you can indicate whether you have a class during one of the poster sessions. We will try to accommodate the scheduled courses of students when assigning a poster session.
