NCUR 2018 Abstract Guidelines

Please Note: The abstract word limit is now 300 words. This limit is more in keeping with the abstract guidelines for other conferences and academic societies. We are unable to make exceptions to this word limit. 

Note to students who have submitted to NCUR in previous years: A new NCUR account must be created each year. Information does not carry over from year to year.

All abstracts must be submitted online through the link on the NCUR 2018 homepage. The link will be open Monday, October 2 through Tuesday, December 5. All primary submitters will need to create a new NCUR account. (You can do this by clicking on the "NCUR Account Portal" from the navigation bar on the homepage.)

Notification will begin around Tuesday, January 23, 2018, and continue through middle of February.

Should your abstract be accepted, you may register for the conference using the same login information. Registration is scheduled to open Tuesday, January 23, 2018.
