In order to present your work at SOURCE, you need to submit an abstract along with several other pieces of information that will help us develop the program. The information on this page will help you prepare your submission.
The first step is to read through all of the information about presenting at SOURCE. Talk to your faculty mentor about presenting at SOURCE about which type of presentation is most appropriate for your work. If you have a group project, talk with the rest of your group members and make sure they are on board with presenting at SOURCE as well. If you have questions about whether or not your work is appropriate, or about accommodating special types of presentations (performances or large constructed objects, for example), contact the SOURCE coordinator.
An abstract describes your project and the context for it in a way that is understandable for an audience of your academic peers. The abstract is limited to 250 words. The content of the abstract varies somewhat depending on your discipline, and a good first step in writing your own abstract is to look for good examples in your own discipline—your faculty mentor can help you here. In addition, we've provided some example abstracts from recent SOURCE presentations.
In general, all abstracts include the following:
Give yourself plenty of time to write your abstract and get feedback from your mentor, especially if this is the first time you've written one. It takes time to write a good abstract. Get feedback from your faculty mentor BEFORE you make your final submission.
You will need some additional information to submit your abstract, including:
In addition, you will be asked to select:
Done all that? Then you are ready to use our online form to submit your abstract.
Finally, remind your mentor that you have submitted your abstract and they should be receiving an email prompting them to approve your submission.
