James J. Whalen Academic Symposium

Abstract Information

After the initial submission by the faculty sponsor or by the student, each student presenter must submit an abstract. (Note: Group presentations require submission of only one abstract.) The abstract provides moderators and attendees with additional information about presenter sessions and helps inform the scheduling process. You may submit your initial proposal and abstract at the same time, but please send them as 2 different PDFs clearly labeled. 

Abstracts must be submitted via email to whalen@ithaca.edu by Thursday, March 9, 2017, at 5 p.m. Abstracts will not be accepted after March 9 at 5 p.m.

Sample abstracts and Judging Rubrics are provided (see sidebar) to guide the development of the abstract and presentation.

Abstracts should be characterized by an objective, scholarly tone (i.e., not first person).

When sending your abstract, please send a pdf and title as follows:  Last name and department.  Example:  Taylor-Computer Science.pdf
