Why should you go
Be a presenter,
Need to know more about what conferences are, and what you do?
See "Conference 101: What Happens, What to Do, and How to Do It Well."
Need to know what an abstract is, and how to write one?
See "Abstracts 101"
Ready to apply to be a presenter?
Ask the faculty member you worked with to be your "mentor" and work with you on your abstract.
The Honors Office will help with grammar, style, etc. (Not subject area content! - That's for the mentor!)
The best way to prepare to do this is to read Abstracts 101 and follow the SCCUR guidelines
(although you will need to give sources for this conference, which SCCUR doesn't require).
Then submit your abstract to https://socccdstudentresearchconference.submittable.com/submit.
If your research is complete, you might consider applying for SCCUR too.
You may use the same abstract.
We'll share info on this conference and its deadlines as soon as it comes available.
Ready to apply to be a moderator?
Submit the following to email@example.com:
--> First and Last Name
--> Student ID#
--> College (Irvine Valley or Saddleback)
--> School email address (@ivc.edu or @saddleback.edu only!)
--> Cell phone number for the day of the conference, if available
--> Times you will not be available between 7:15 am and 3:00 pm that day.
--> Any questions you have.
If you want to be a volunteer but not moderate a session, just say so in the email. There may be positions available. The worst-case scenario is that you get to be in the audience!
