2017 ACES Symposium

The Annual Celebration of Excellence by Students (ACES) symposium is a university-wide, daylong event that occurs in late March. ACES showcases the best of our students' research and creativity. Undergraduate and graduate students work with faculty mentors to write and submit abstracts for the competition. The approved abstracts are then turned into poster presentations to be presented at the symposium.  Monetary awards are given in graduate and undergraduate categories.

ACES attracts an audience from a range of academic fields. Value is placed on abstracts and presentations grounded in strong research. Submitted abstracts should be written in the style of the research discipline. 

The 2017 ACES Symposium will only accept abstracts for poster presentations.

Abstract submissions are due Monday, February 13, at midnight.
