Abstract Submission


The deadline to submit abstracts for the conference is March 30.

Abstract Submission Form

We also welcome group presentations. If you are submitting a group abstract, please list names and emails of all presenters. When you submit the abstract form you'll need to have the following information:

  • Title of your research.
  • Name, department and email address of faculty mentor(s) and the faculty who worked with you to develop this research.
  • Whether or not you want to do a poster or presentation (see links to the left for description of what these involve).
  • An abstract description of 100-200 words.
  • The conference organizers will attempt to schedule your presentation at a time when you are not in class but cannot make any guarantees.  If you choose a poster session you will need to be available for as much of the time between between 11:30 a.m. -1 p.m. as possible.

The conference organizers will review your abstract and then contact you about whether or not your abstract has been accepted to the conference.  In most cases you will hear back within one week of your abstract submission


We strongly encourage faculty to nominate their excellent students to participate in the Symposium. However, because this is a student driven event students must be the ones to complete the abstract form.

  • Contact students directly and let them know you think they have produced some quality work and that you urge them to present this work at the IU Kokomo Undergraduate Research Symposium. Tell the student to submit their abstract using the form above.
  • Student work can include research papers, studies, art, posters, creative writing, etc. “Research” is not limited solely to traditional forms of academic endeavor.
