In this spirit, our students and faculty will exhibit poster and oral presentations in the Armour Blackburn Center on Thursday, April 13, 2017 in the following categories:

  • Biological & Biomedical Sciences
  • Business
  • Creative Arts & Design
  • Education & Outreach
  • Ethics, Law & Religion
  • Humanities
  • Physical Sciences & Engineering
  • Social Sciences
  • Translational & Clinical Sciences

Abstract Submissions

Abstracts for posters or presentations must be submitted by 11:59 PM Tuesday, February 28, 2017 electronically via this website. Late submissions will not be accepted. Submit only your abstract. Do not submit complete research papers. The abstract submission system will open on Monday, October 3, 2016.
