Rules & Regulations
Eligibility
  • Must be a current Duquesne University graduate student (Masters or Doctoral, full or part-time).
  • All disciplines are welcome and encouraged to participate.
  • Students may submit research or scholarship work initiated during their academic work at Duquesne, but not yet published or presented in their professional arena.
  • Participants must be present the day of the symposium.
Submission Process
  • All abstracts must be submitted by October 3rd via the online submission form.
  • Abstracts must be 300 words or less
  • A selection committee will review all proposals.
  • Please note: Our submission form will accept only one abstract per user.
  • Because our submission form accepts only one abstract per user, projects with multiple authors should choose one person from the group to submit on the group's behalf. This person will then act as the "group leader," forwarding all information to his or her co-authors.
    Poster Presentations
    • Abstracts for poster presentations must be submitted no later than October 3rd.
    • Posters should be no larger than 36" by 48".
    • Posters should contain a prominent title, name the authors, & effectively convey the findings of your research or scholarship.
    • Participants may either elect to use a corkboard or a table for poster display. If your project is going to be 3D (such as a tri-fold or containing props, a computer, etc), we suggest the use of a table. If your poster is going to be flat, we suggest that you use a corkboard.
    • Some students may choose to bring a computer in the case that their project requires it. Those who plan on this should choose a table for display.
    • Notification for acceptance into the GSRS poster session will be given by email by October 17th.
