Abstract Submission Deadline: April 27, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: May 31, 2021
Understanding Interventions Proposals are invited for presentation on research projects and best practices highlighting pathways to STEM careers. Abstracts can be submitted to present as a workshop, symposium, deeper dive, or poster. Abstracts are to be submitted online through the submission portal. We encourage you to use the template that can be downloaded here in preparing your abstract. For final submission, please complete all relevant fields and upload your abstract as a word document. All abstracts will be published in an annual special issue of the UI Journal.
Workshops will provide attendees with models, methods, and hands-on tools that can be adapted to other campuses, programs, and populations. Two types of workshops are available: a. Hands-on interactive sessions (1.5 or 3 hours), and b. Focused Seminar (1.5 hours) on a single topic. Although not a requirement, Workshop presenters are encouraged to prepare a related poster and present in the poster session.
Symposia. Concurrent symposia feature 20-minute presentations, each followed by a 10-minute open question and answer period. Symposia presenters are encouraged to prepare a related poster and present in the poster session.
Deeper Dives. Concurrent Deeper Dive sessions feature 15-minute presentations, after which members of the audience adjourn to one of three 30-minute breakout discussions of their choice, each led by a speaker (and his/her coauthors). Symposia presenters are encouraged to prepare a related poster and present in the poster session.
Posters. Poster presentations will highlight the following components:
1) Focus of the intervention—what is studied and why
2) Study population—describe it and any comparison or control group
3) Contextual factors—what was measured and how what limits generalization
4) Outcomes of the intervention—what was found in what time frame
5) Relevance to the UI community—how does the study advance theory and/or practice as described in the literature; what is adaptable and possible next steps
