2017 ACES Symposium
ACES Abstract Submission
Please read the following carefully:
- The 2017 ACES Symposium is only accepting abstracts for poster presentations.
- Submission of an abstract does not guarantee inclusion in ACES.
- Limit your abstract to a maximum of 2500 characters (This will be approximately 250 words.)
- The person submitting the abstract must be the presenter.
- Only one person can present an abstract submission at the ACES symposium.
- Only one person can receive the award.
- The abstract must be submitted by Monday, February 13, at midnight.
- Students will be notified by email of acceptance to ACES and their poster number approximately one month prior to the event.
- If there are problems with your submission, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- If you elect to withdraw from ACES please email email@example.com for assistance.
- All questions about ACES should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because ACES celebrates student research and creativity, all potential presentations must reflect the author's first-hand investigative efforts. As such, a presentation that serves primarily as a summary of other scholars' research (i.e., a literature review) is not appropriate to this venue.
Preparing an abstract for ACES:
In preparing an ACES abstract, each student author should be certain to address the following:
- A clear statement of the central issue to be investigated
- A description of the results of the study, including reference to what was investigated (i.e., data, texts, etc.)
- An interpretation of the study's results
- A note as to the significance of the findings as they relate to your discipline
Unlike many academic conferences, which are quite often organized around a single discipline, ACES attracts an audience made up of individuals from a range of academic fields: students and judges come from all of UT Arlington's nine colleges and schools.
The submission deadline has passed. Please plan on attending the event on Wednesday, March 22, 2017.
