Abstract Guidelines & Submission

Abstracts should be submitted electronically (as a file attachment – see below). They will be assembled without revisions into the program book for the day of the symposium. To ensure uniformity, conform to the format specified below.

  1. Use 12 pt font, preferably New Times Roman.
  2. Limit your abstract to 300 words or less, not counting title, name (or names if co-authors), and affiliation information. The abstract should consist of a single paragraph, left-justified and without indentation.
  3. Type the title of the abstract in capital, bold letters.
  4. The author/affiliation information, typed in bold, should include full name the author(s) and their affiliation (department, school, city, state, zip code).
  5. Underline the name of the presenter for both oral and poster presentations. Put an asterisk (*) behind the name of the student presenter, to ensure the eligibility for awards.
  6. Traditionally, an abstract includes the following items:
    1. Introductory statement: Introduces the general subject matter of the study.
    2. Justification: comments on the ultimate importance of looking at the phenomenon in question.
    3. Objectives: Specifies the objectives of the study (1-2 sentences).
    4. Methods: principal methods employed, no detail: a couple of sentences.
    5. Results and Discussion:- list most important, specific findings and add an interpretive comment ("discussion") to each.
    6. Summary and significance: - In one sentence summarize the major take-home message of the observations and comment on their significance. (Note that the focus of "significance" is narrower, more specific, than that of justification.)

Submission

Write your abstract in MS Word file format and submit as an email file attachment to dessig@geneva.edu. If you are using a Macintosh computer, please save in a file format that can be translated into a PC MS Word document. 

Abstract submission due date is Friday April 9, 2010.
