The abstract is a succinct, 150 work (maximum) summary of the research being presented. The style may vary with research discipline, but in general the abstract should introduce the research area and highlight the importance of the research, suggest the gap in knowledge that the research is addressing, and describe the work to be presented including methods and results obtained or to be obtained. Additionally, it must also provide conference attendees enough information to make a decision on which presentations they are most interested in viewing.
For guidance in writing a research abstract, refer to the following guidelines: Writing a General Research Abstract.
Presentation material should be new and previously unpublished. However, inclusion of previously published material is acceptable if it is critical for the audience appreciation of the work currently being presented.
Yes, but only if there is a faculty sponsor from a participating Spokane-area institution.

The conference schedule has not yet been finalized, but ample time will be provided to set up and remove posters. Once the session times have been determined, presenters will be contacted with specific details.
You will be contacted via email by the end of March with the status of your abstract.
While you are not required to attend the entire day, we encourage participants to attend multiple presentations Participating in SIRC is not only about delivering your own research but also learning about the research of others so, if you are able to attend sessions outside of your own, you will gain much more from the conference that if you simply present.
The conference is a professional gathering for the purpose of presenting academic scholarship. Please dress appropriately, for example, business casual.
Oral presentation sessions are one hour and 15 minutes and will generally have between 3 and 5 student presenters. Presentations are therefore between 10 and 20 minutes with 3 to 5 minutes per presentation for questions.
All presentation rooms are equipped with computer with USB port, computer projection, and PowerPoint.
This may be possible; however, the use of a flash drive to load presentations onto the desktop computer in the session room is preferred to reduce technical complications and the time required for setup.
Posters have a recommended limit of 36" by 60". Please contact Dr. Ann Ciasullo (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have special requirements for your presentation.
If you must withdraw your abstract after it has been accepted, please notify Dr. Ann Ciasullo (email@example.com) as soon as possible.
