The abstract submission period will open soon!
Your abstract submission allows the Spring Symposium planning committee to prepare the symposium program, as well as organize details around presentations and posters. Therefore, your project does NOT need to be completed in order to submit an abstract. We will accept abstracts from students that plan to present at Spring Symposium, but have not completed their project by the submission deadline.
Abstract submissions should provide a background of your project, a description of your methodology or creative approach, a hypothesis or results (preliminary results are accepted), and a statement regarding the overall significance of your project (including impact, application, novelty, etc.). The abstract should be no longer than 1400 characters.
Watch for “CALL for ABSTRACT” posters that will be posted across campus before the end of February. We look forward to hearing about and/or seeing your work on May 24th.
View last year’s event:
The Spring Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate students at Eastern Oregon to showcase and present their creative activities and accomplished studies to fellow students, faculty and the public.
Students will present on a variety of topics spanning the breadth of scholarly work undertaken on our campus. The presentations are discipline-specific and range from artistic displays, panel presentations, poster sessions, talks, exhibits, and performance art.
It is an excellent “presenting” opportunity for students, and a celebration of undergraduate achievement in research and creative activities.
Information for Student Presenters
All students that wish to present at the Spring Symposium must complete the online application. An abstract (1400 character limit) describing the research effort must be included as part of the application. Please work with your faculty adviser when preparing the abstract. We will be providing information sessions on preparing a talk and for creating a poster. Dates will be announced for early spring term help sessions.
Poster printing instructions for the BH106 printer will be available to students participating in Poster Presentations for the 2017 Spring Symposium. Since a poster printing session is likely to take 60 minutes, please schedule your print time as soon as possible with MJ Heather in the Badgley Hall Science Office. Warning: DO NOT wait until the week of Symposium!
Contact: MJ Heather, BH215 or call 541-962-3316 for additional information and to schedule printing time. The hours for Symposium poster printing in May will be 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. , Monday thru Friday BY APPOINTMENT. Please keep in mind there is a service charge for poster printing to cover supplies and maintenance (plan for up to $25). Anyone paying for their own poster will need to do so via cash or check and receipts will be issued. We can transfer charges to department accounts only with the approval of the department head and your faculty advisor.
