Research symposium deadline is approaching

The deadline to submit abstracts to the 2016 ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium is May 27. 

The third symposium, hosted by the College of Applied Sciences and Arts, is Oct. 14-15, at the Transportation Education Center. This year’s 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. 

Top posters will receive monetary prizes. For more information, visit the symposium website or contact Chad Schwartz, assistant professor, in the School of Architecture.
