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, 2017 at midnight.
  • Students will be notified by email of acceptance to ACES and their poster number approximately one month prior to the event.

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.
