In less than 500 words, poster abstracts should summarize the following: 1) the research question/problem statement; 2) the theory and hypothesis; 3) the research methods; 4) the findings; and 5) the research implications. Submissions should be limited to research conducted during your time as a student. Research that incorporates the effort of a professor or a professional researcher (e.g., think tanks) is prohibited.
