Call For Proposals – UMA’s 2023 Student Research Conference

The UMA Student Research Conference is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together to share our work across disciplines and programs and to learn more about a variety of topics, including this year’s academic theme, Disability Visibility.

Students may choose to submit a proposal in multiple formats (papers, posters, roundtables/panels, or creative performances, and more). Some of these formats involve only an individual submission, but some require collaboration and pre-planning. Students are encouraged to seek guidance from faculty members and/or staff to develop their title and abstract before submitting their proposal.

Conference Proposals are due by April 1! Late proposals cannot be considered.

Proposals will need a title, a format, and an abstract/description. The title and description provided will appear in the conference program. Participants will also be asked about their real-time availability on Friday, April 21st, when the synchronous (real-time) student presentations will take place. Asynchronous (pre-recorded) presentation proposals will be considered in extraordinary circumstances.

Visit the conference website to submit your proposal. (Registration is required, but there is no cost).

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Lorien Lake-Corral or Dr. Robert Kellerman, and students: don’t forget to ask your professors, Library or Writing Center staff, or Honors students for help!
