Symposium Guidelines

Presentation is limited to CTAHR  graduate and undergraduate students, and COE undergraduate students, or other classified students whose research is performed under direct supervision of CTAHR or COE faculty. Work being reported can be, but is not limited to, thesis or dissertation research. Presentations on undergraduate research, review papers, or capstone projects carried out under the guidance of CTAHR or COE faculty are welcome. All presentations must represent original work performed by the presenting student.

Students are welcome and encouraged to submit abstracts even if they may have presented their findings at past CTAHR or CAFNRM Student Research Symposia. The work being presented, however, should contain some new results and should not be a repetition of a previous presentation. Oral or poster papers may be presented although there is a limit on the number of oral presentations that can be accommodated. If the Symposium is unable to accommodate all abstracts submitted for oral presentation, some students will be asked to present posters instead. The criteria for deciding which presentations will be asked to be delivered as posters can be found at the Symposium website. Students are reminded that all research involving human subjects or animals needs prior approval by the appropriate university boards or committees.

A panel of judges will score each oral and poster presentation to determine award winners. Only students majoring in CTAHR’s academic programs are eligible for prizes awarded by CTAHR or by CTAHR units and similarly for COE students. Students who are not in a CTAHR major are eligible to receive category awards, however, CTAHR will not provide award stipends to non-CTAHR students. First-prize winners in a particular category in previous years are not eligible for prizes in the same category. Again, to be eligible for prizes, original work or review papers must be presented. Students presenting work done at another university, e.g., a Ph.D. student presenting M.S. research done at another university, are not eligible for awards.

All SRS winners who attend CTAHR's Annual Awards Banquet in early May will be recognized. The Banquet hosts the recipients of the top three Best Oral and Best Poster awards; their guests may attend at the applicable (general or CTAHR student) registration rate. The college encourages departments to host SRS participants from their departments who receive other CTAHR, Honor Society or Department awards.

NOTICE FOR SRS 2017: In an effort to promote student research accomplishments to our broader community, as well as providing a unique platform for students to test their communication skills, CTAHR is hosting a 3-Minute Elevator Pitch (3MEP) competition on April 21 at 3:30pm  for the top 18 CTAHR Poster and Oral PhD, Masters, and Undergraduate award winners (see Symposium Awards page for list of 18 awards). College winners will be obligated to present a layperson three-min talk, using one slide, to the lay community. Students will receive the guidance and tutoring/assistance necessary to develop a quality presentation and have the opportunity to earn CASH PRIZES. The 4 award categories are best: PhD., MS., and Undergraduate, as well as a people’s choice award. We will produce 4 videos from these selected presentations to post online. Click here for more information.
