Location: Due to Covid, this conference will be virtual hosted by Dr. Erika Iyengar, Muhlenberg College.

What to Expect:

  • Traditional talks

Lightning round video submission deadlines: Friday, April 9
Registration deadline (for non-presenters): Monday, April 12

Format:
TRADITIONAL
– 12 minute live presentation via Zoom with screen sharing
– 3 minutes of questions

LIGHTNING ROUND
– 5 minute pre-recorded talk shown on conference day
– audience views 4 lightning round presentations, then open for 10 minutes of questions across all 4 speakers who will be in live attendance via screen sharing

Undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and faculty are encouraged to present current research. Top priority will be given to graduating students to present, in the case that there are too many applications to maintain a shortened conference.

No poster session this year; would-be poster presenters are encouraged to consider a “lighting talk” instead.

“Best talk” awards will be given for traditional format talks only.
