REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS


Hunter College is pleased to announce the third annual Undergraduate Research Conference set for March 25-26, 2015. Building on the success of previous years, this year’s conference will provide a forum for Hunter undergraduates from all disciplines and departments to present their research or scholarship via poster sessions and oral presentations. The conference will include information about pursuing research opportunities at Hunter and beyond as well as an awards ceremony honoring the best student presentations and faculty excellence in mentoring undergraduates in research and scholarship.

 

**The abstract submission deadline is February 1, 2015**

 

There are two options for presentations:

10-minute Oral presentation
Poster presentation
We invite submissions for individual undergraduates to give a 10-minute oral presentation on research they have conducted in any academic area. Oral presentation sessions will take place on both conference days, with several students presenting during each session.  Depending on the number of submissions received, it may not be possible to accept all presentations.  We therefore recommend that students consider applying for multiple types of presentations (e.g., a poster and an oral presentation) to ensure their participation in the conference. We invite submissions from undergraduates to present up to two posters on research conducted in any academic area. There will be at least two poster sessions each day of the conference. All Hunter undergraduates who submit a poster that is endorsed by a faculty sponsor will be accepted.

Requirements

  • Before submitting a proposal for the Conference, students must obtain approval from the Hunter faculty member who supervised the research or a Hunter faculty member who is willing to sponsor the submission if the research was conducted outside of Hunter.  Faculty will be required to indicate their support of the submission as part of the application process.
  • Submissions must include an abstract of no more than 250 words. Students are encouraged to work with their faculty sponsors to develop their abstracts and their presentations.

Requirements

  • Students must be an author on the poster. (Posters may have multiple authors.)
  • Before submitting a poster for the conference, students must obtain approval from the Hunter faculty member who supervised the research or a Hunter faculty member who is willing to sponsor the submission if the research was conducted outside of Hunter.  Faculty will be required to indicate their support of the submission as part of the application process.
  • Submissions must include an abstract of no more than 250 words. Students are encouraged to work with their faculty sponsors to develop their abstracts and posters.

How to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentations:

 

  1. Student submissions must be completed  here
  2. Faculty approval of submissions should be completed here

 


All accepted submissions will be published in the Hunter College Undergraduate Research Conference Proceedings.

 

Abstract Preparation

Because abstracts will be published and can be listed on students’ CVs, they should be as professional as possible. We strongly recommend that students work with their faculty sponsors in developing their abstracts, which typically include a research question, methods, results, and the significance of the work.  Students may visit this source for tips on preparing an abstract.
