The abstract submission page on the conference website is now open at the site below.

 

Conference website: https://nova.skidmore.edu:8012/ords/f?p=167:1:0:, then click on “Next Meeting”

STUDENT AND FACULTY TALKS.  Talks are scheduled to be 15 minutes in length. 

 

STUDENT TALKS.  For student talks, please make sure that each student presenter has a faculty sponsor.   This faculty sponsor should be willing to help the student prepare a suitable talk for the conference, hear a practice presentation by the student, and to help assess the level of the talk.

 

FACULTY TALKS.  Please encourage faculty to give talks at the conference! The Hudson River Conference is NOT a student conference; it is a conference in which faculty and students interact as colleagues. We have had great success with student talks in the past few years, but would like to have more faculty talks.  Our goal is to have 20% of the talks be given by faculty, but we have been falling well below that goal at the past few conferences.
 

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION.  To submit an abstract, go to the main HRUMC webpage: https://nova.skidmore.edu:8012/ords/f?p=167:1:0:  then click on the "Abstract Submission” tab at the top of the page.  From there, follow the onscreen directions.  Once the submission has been made, you should receive an email verification of the submission.  That email should be retained as proof of submission.
