Abstract Submission


Please submit abstracts for research and best practices posters by filling out the submission form and emailing it as an attachment to mbaker@coe.edu. Faculty sponsors should send verifying email to the same address.  Sponsor verification is to ensure us that data (where relevant) have been collected and that students understand their obligation to attend the conference and present a poster of adequate quality.

Poster size limitations will be provided to you in a timely fashion. 

Registration is $5.00 for each student participant including presenters.  Please fill out a registration form and email to mbaker@coe.edu before October 27, 2005. Student participants may register on-site the morning of the conference, but pre-registration makes it easier for us to plan for the event.

The registration fee is waived for faculty accompanying student participants.

Graduate School Fair

Morning Undergraduate Sessions

Representatives from graduate programs from Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin will be available to talk with interested students.  All students who are considering graduate school are urged to attend the conference.

Preceding the keynote address there will be two fifty-minute sessions featuring panels of speakers discussing "Graduate School Admissions Strategies" and "Careers for Psychology Majors"
