Call for Abstracts

The Second Interdisciplinary Research Symposium will feature a poster session and competition. We encourage both graduate and undergraduate students to submit abstracts showcasing their interdisciplinary efforts in quality research performed at Virginia Tech or other universities.

Abstracts selected for the poster session will be notified by Oct 23rd 2012. Selected abstracts will also feature the Symposium’s Compendium.

Abstracts will be selected primarily on the extent of integration of distinct disciplines into the author’s work and secondarily on the results/outcomes/impact of the work. Abstracts that do not adhere to formatting guidelines will not be accepted.
