2019 Science Symposium

The deadline to submit abstracts has now passed. We will not be accepting late registrations.

As this is SC INBRE’s Science Symposium, with the exception of the high school summer students and the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) participants, abstracts can only be accepted for only those projects supported by SC INBRE funding mechanisms - BIPP, DRP or institutional funds.

Call for Abstracts

  • Abstracts (all presenters - podium and poster) are due 5 pm, Monday, December 16, 5 pm EST.

  • Registration closes Wednesday, January 15, 5 pm EST (submitting an abstract does not equal registration – you need to do both).

  • Please pay careful attention to the Guidelines and adhere to them. Abstracts will not be accepted if they are not in proper format. Sample abstract is attached to the Guidelines document.

  • NEW - Online abstract submissions! If you have a Gmail account, use this link to submit your abstract to us. No Gmail? No problem! Fill out the abstract submission form without uploading your abstract and then email your abstract to scinbre@gmail.com. Accepted abstracts must be received by the deadline of 5 pm, Monday, December 16, 5 pm EST. No late abstracts will be accepted.

  • High school student poster presenters: please include the name of your high school as your affiliation. You may also acknowledge the institution where you did your research. For example:

NEW THIS YEAR! 3-Minute Madness!

One student poster presenter from each of the six categories will be chosen at random to do a three-minute poster presentation preview prior to the first poster session. Each participant is allowed only 1 slide. If you would like to be considered for the random drawing, indicate that you would like be a 3-Minute Madness presenter when you submit your poster abstract (and photo/write-up).

Online Magazine

Faculty and students: When you submit your abstract, please include a short write up in your email of either a description of your research in lay-terms that anyone would be able to understand or tell us about your research experience. This is optional (but would be much appreciated!). Your photo or a photo that represents your write up would also be appreciated. These will be used in the online Symposium magazine (see 2018’s magazine for examples).

Important Notice about Logos!

When designing your poster (students) or podium (faculty, 3-Minute Madness students) presentation, DO NOT download the SC INBRE logo off of the web! Any logos you find on the internet are VERY LOW RES and would not produce well on your presentation. There is a link to the logos from the Toolbox page (as well as how to acknowledge SC INBRE).

  • Questions about how to design your poster? We have some simple tips here.
