The general expectation at research conferences is that presentation material is new and that inclusion of previously published material is avoided unless critical for the audience appreciation of the yet published work.
If there is a faculty sponsor from a participating institution and the student is expected to have continued involvement in the research, then such an abstract would be considered by the review committee.

The primary focus of SIRC is to provide a forum for undergraduates to present their research. However, applications by graduate students will be considered. Contact Dr. Patricia Terry if you have questions.
Yes, a presenter can give both a talk and a poster. However, to avoid scheduling session conflicts, presenters may give a maximum of one talk and one poster.
Yes, a lunch is provided for those who reserve a spot when they are notified that their abstract has been accepted. Other dining opportunities are available near Gonzaga University within walking distance, as well.

Posters may be set up between 8 am (when the doors will open) and 11:30 am. Please remove posters following the last poster session.
You will be contacted by the end of March with the status of your abstract.
The abstract is a succinct, 150 word (maximum) summary of the research being presented. It provides the conference organizers with enough information to make a decision about inclusion in the program and an appropriate session. It must also provide conference attendees enough information to make a decision on which presentations they are most interested in viewing. The general 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.
No, you are welcome to attend as much of the conference as you'd like.
The conference is a professional gathering to present 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 48" but slightly larger posters can be accommodated.
If you must withdraw your abstract after it has been accepted, please notify Dr. Patricia Terry as soon as possible.
