Abstract submissions and registration open!

Abstract submissions are now open for the 2024 SENR student research symposium! This year, the SENR student research symposium is expanding presentation formats. There will be 2 poster presentation formats and 1 oral presentation format. The two poster presentation options are 1) a standard research poster, or 2) a research proposal poster. The research proposal poster is an extra option only for graduate students who do not have enough results yet to substaniate a typical research poster, but may have a compelling research proposal to share. For this new format, there will be a specific award given out for best research proposal. Awards will be given for best undergraduate research poster, best graduate research poster, best research proposal, and best oral presenation. We look forward to seeing your presentations! Please submit an abstract here. Deadline is Midnight, April 1st, 2024.
