Optional audiovisuals (PowerPoint, etc.) will be due for preloading by 5pm on April 15, and presenters are encouraged to bring audiovisuals on USB backup to the presentation.

Students should discuss potential submissions with a faculty member to determine whether the student’s project is appropriate for presentation at an academic conference.

Review of papers:
Presenters should discuss their papers for the Proceedings with their advisors before submission. Advisors whose students submit papers will be asked to review papers from their disciplines in order to maintain consistency for the Proceedings.
