Paper & Presentation Submissions

Guidelines for Research/Scholarship/Teaching Submissions:

Abstract Abstracts should present research/scholarship/teaching/design that has not been published or presented at other professional conferences. Use Times New Roman, font size 12, for all text including titles and 1 inch margins. Prepare three electronic files, all in Microsoft Word format. Undergraduate submissions must have a faculty sponsor. It is the responsibility of the faculty sponsor to screen the entries for quality, completeness, and accuracy and to be actively involved in the submission process. All research/teaching/design submissions presented at the symposium will be included in the Proceedings. An author whose work is accepted, an author from a team of researchers, or the undergraduate faculty sponsor must attend the symposium and present the work as well as register for the symposium.

File 1 contains a cover page with title of paper and name and contact information (address, phone number, email) for all authors. Corresponding author is designated. All symposium information will be sent to corresponding author only.

File 2 contains an abstract in English for review (2 pages maximum, single spaced, in a Word.doc format; one inch margins, font size 12, Times New Roman). Include the title (single spaced, centered, maximum 30 words) but no identifying information about author(s) or professional affiliation(s). Tables and other graphics should be incorporated within the body of the abstract in the appropriate place(s). All content (references, tables, figures) must fit within the 2 page limit.

File 3 contains the information in file 2 with the addition of authors, institutional affiliation, and country information left justified. File 3 will be used for the symposium proceedings. This will go directly into the proceedings once the submission has been accepted for presentation. There will be no opportunity to make changes once submitted to the symposium.
