Plans underway for third ASA Research Symposium

The College of Applied Sciences and Arts’ third multidisciplinary research symposium is set for Oct. 14-15. 

The 2016 symposium – “Emerging Technologies: Innovation in the Applied Sciences and Arts” – is open to faculty and students from any discipline, university, or professional organizations. The sessions will feature presentations, posters and panel discussions that involve the fields of Allied Health, Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, Transportation, and Information Systems and Applied Technologies. The goal is for proposals that will encourage discussion of current and emerging issues in the applied sciences and arts. 

Authors of accepted proposals will have the option of submitting a full paper for review; top papers will be published in The Journal of Applied Sciences and Arts. The symposium will also include a student poster competition to provide a forum for students actively engaged in research or significant course projects. 

The deadline to submit proposals for topical presentations, workshops and panel discussions is May 27. Successful presenters will be notified June 30. Proposals for student posters are due July 29. For more information, visit the symposium website or contact Chad Schwartz, assistant professor, in the School of Architecture.
