To read abstracts that are related to your research topic, use the search function at this site: http://www.cur.org/conferences_and_events/student_events/ncur/archive/ where you can read abstracts that were accepted to NCUR. This will provide you with a general idea of what to include. • Title is limited to 60 characters.
• Abstract is limited to 1500 characters (and should be at least ~100 words) , Please follow the instructions provided at the workshop and check with your mentor before submitting. The general format for an abstract is: Background information, Purpose/ Objective/ Creative Concept, General Methods, Results, Conclusion/ Significance/ Contribution of the work.
• You can cut and paste your abstract.
• The program does not support formatting such as underlining. The program should support Unicode characters for those of you who want to use Greek letters and other symbols. You’ll need to look up the Unicode for these special characters.
• SOME PEOPLE HAVE HAD PROBLEMS SUBMITTING AN ABSTRACT--- If the length of the abstract is very close the maximum and contains special characters, the length calculation exceeds the maximum. The workaround is to shorten the length of the abstract by a few characters and resubmit it.
If you notice that the program does not count or limit your characters, you will still need to limit your abstract or expect your abstract to be cut short. Due to space constraints, ENTRIES THAT EXCEED THE LIMITS WILL BE CUT SHORT DURING ABSTRACT EDITING.
