Abstracts are to be submitted in PDF format, and should be no more than 500 words in length, including examples (encouraged) and in-text citations. Full references are not necessary; please use the (Author, Year) format.

See the LSA model abstracts page for guidance in building an acceptable abstract.

You may submit at most: one single-author abstract and one multi-author abstract, or two multi-author abstracts. For abstracts co-authored with a faculty member, the student should be the primary author and should have carried out the bulk of the research and analysis. In addition, the student will be responsible for the presentation of the paper at the conference.

Abstracts are to be uploaded through the conference interface on the Abstract page.

The top 4 submitted student abstracts will be awarded $200 to cover conference travel costs.

All talks will be given 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions.
