When will abstract submission open?
Applications for EECScon 2017 are now closed - check back next year!
What are the requirements?
We suggest at least one term of research experience, such as part-time work in the fall or full-time research over IAP. This usually provides enough depth of research to allow you to make a good poster or oral presentation. Please note that your research may be incomplete by the abstract deadline (February 21), but it must be ready a few weeks before the conference (early April).
Am I eligible?
Any undergraduate student is eligible to submit and present at EECScon! Although we originally targeted course 6 students, we'd love to have you present your research regardless of your major.
Can first year students submit abstracts?
YES! We strongly encourage any undergraduate student with research experience to apply to EECScon. Every year, we’ve had a number of first-year students present on their research. In fact, one year the oral presentation winner was a first-year student.
What should the abstract contain?
Abstracts must be no longer than 200 words and should introduce:
- the context of the work (including research question/problem)
- an outline of the solution's approach
- results/data (if any)
How does the review process work?
All submissions will automatically be considered for the poster session, and you will have the option to additionally be considered to give one of a few oral presentations. Accepted students will have the opportunity to be given help and feedback from graduate student mentors familiar with the research area.
Are there awards?
Yes, there are monetary awards! In past years, several top oral and poster presentations have won awards and prizes.
