Research Symposium

The annual College of Applied and Natural Sciences Research Symposium and ANS Day will be held April 9 in the Student Center. 

Faculty and students who have received ANS Research Mini-Grant funding are expected to report on the progress of their funded project at this symposium.

Presentations – both oral and posters – should describe current research projects as well as ongoing research programs. 


Each oral presentation will be scheduled for a total of 15 minutes. This includes time for the presentation plus a question-and-answer period. A limited number of oral presentation time slots will be available. If requests for oral time slots exceed time slot availability, those requesting but not receiving oral presentation time slots will be offered poster display space instead. 

Poster presentations should be set up before the beginning of the poster session. Tripod easels will be provided, but presentation boards to support posters are the responsibility of the presenters. Because of space limitations, posters will be restricted to a maximum width of four feet. During the poster session presenters are requested to be available for discussing their work.

Additional details for oral and poster presenters will be provided at a future date. Be sure to provide contact information (email) when submitting your abstract.

Deadline for submission of abstracts – 4 p.m. March 20
