The Catholic University of America

Call for Abstracts for University Research Day

The Office of the Provost invites campus-wide participation from all disciplines in The Catholic University of America Research Day on April 20, 2017.  All University classes will be cancelled on Research Day, allowing the entire campus community to take part.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate and share the exciting scholarship and research of all members of the University community.  The event is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff researchers in any area of study who wish to showcase their work.  There will be oral, artistic performances, and poster presentations across all areas of research.  Student abstracts may result from mentored research projects or course-related research projects. There will be “best poster” and “best presentation” awards for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Talks and posters should be geared toward a general audience, and try to excite the audience rather than emphasize technical details.

Abstract Instructions

ALL abstracts must be written for a general audience and use non-technical and jargon-free language. If you are interested in presenting a paper or project, or presenting an artistic performance or project, please find additional information in the Presentation Guidelines section of this website BEFORE submitting your abstract.

Requirements: Abstracts must be no longer than 500 words and written in clear, non-technical language that is geared for a general audience who is not familiar with your work or your discipline.

Submission Deadline: Abstracts must be received by January 27 by 5 p.m. to be considered. Submissions received after this date will not be accepted.
