Intent to Present Submissions

I submitted an intent to present a few weeks ago. Do I ever get any feedback on that?
Feedback is not provided on Intent to Present content. It is used for the purposes of determining appropriate research categories for the symposium, and to plan on the number of poster and oral presentations.
Is it possible to either change the current intent to a different topic, or if it is possible to give multiple talks. I’m submitting 3 papers all pertaining to mathematics and would be more than willing to talk about all or one of them. Just wanted to know restrictions and if I can change what I want to talk about?
As in prior years, students can only present more than one presentation if the topics are truly different. If your presentations are variations on the same theme, only one will be allowed. You can make the changes you mentioned when you submit your Abstract.

Abstract Submissions

My teammate submitted our Abstract. Do I also need to submit an Abstract?
No. In fact, only one submission per title will be allowed. If more than one is submitted, all others will be deleted. With more than 200 presentations, there isn’t enough time or space to allow more than one poster or oral presentation per research title.
My teammate and I are conducting research together and both of us would like to present our findings. Can we have a double block reserved for our oral presentations?
No. Oral presentations are reserved in 15-minute periods. If your presentations are similar, please submit one abstract for the two of you to present together.
I just started conducting my summer research on June 1. Why do I have to submit my Abstract only 6 weeks later? It’s too soon for me to know where my research will end.
It’s understandable that summer researchers would like the Abstract deadline extended. This Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate students to present research conducted at any time during the past year. Additionally, a minimum of three weeks is needed by both the Program and Organizing Committees to complete the following tasks, before sending the program to the printer:
  • Review all abstract submissions to ensure the appropriate research theme was selected.
  • Schedule all oral presentations by placing similar topics into the same presentation block, and in a particular order.
  • Organize all poster presentations and assign locations.
  • Add all student presentation information into the program booklet.
The e-mail confirming my abstract submission had a few strange characters in the abstract. Can I edit my Abstract?
Yes, please do. Login and make your own edits until July 17th.
I just submitted my abstract online, and when I received the confirmation email I noticed that my abstract was cut off. My abstract is 148 words long, so it meets the criteria. I'm wondering what I can do to submit my full abstract?
Login and make your own edits until July 17th.
I already submitted an abstract, my advisor decided to change the title and abstract a bit. Can I email these changes?
Login and make your own edits until July 17th.
I already submitted my Abstract and I signed up to present a poster. However, I would now like to switch to an oral presentation. Is this possible for me at this point?
You may change your presentation format until the end-of-day Wednesday, July 17. Please login to your account to make this change.

Registration

Why do I need to register to attend if I submitted an abstract?
Several presentations have more than one researcher, but not all researchers are able to attend the Symposium. Therefore, attendance at the conference is handled separately through registration, which is the same process for most professional conferences. When you submit your registration form, you will receive the following:
  • A nametag will be printed and waiting for you to pick-up at Registration.
  • You will be provided with a ticket for breakfast and/or lunch, if you choose one or both during registration.
  • If you require Access Services, we will notify Access Services for you.
My mentor can only attend the Symposium for my oral presentation. Does s/he have to register?
Yes. Everyone who is attending the Symposium must register prior to July 23, http://www.rit.edu/research/symposium/register.php.
My friend, who is not presenting at the Symposium, would like to attend? Can s/he?
Yes. Everyone who is attending the Symposium must register prior to July 23, http://www.rit.edu/research/symposium/register.php.

Day of Symposium

Where will I pick-up my name tag?
Pick-up your nametag at the Registration table on the 2nd level of Louise Slaughter Hall (Bldg. 78).
I'm looking at the final presentation schedule and my talk isn't there.
