Call for Works in Progress Posters
Deadline for Extended Abstracts (maximum 250 words): October 3, 2011

Attendees of the conference are invited to share current research through posters presented at the Works in Progress Showcase.  Participants receive feedback in an informal setting.  This is an excellent opportunity to identify collaborators and obtain feedback that may enrich research.  The poster may represent any aspect of the researcherís work:  proposal, theoretical framework, methodology, findings, etc.

The posters for the Works in Progress Showcase are neither refereed nor judged.  We do have limited space for the posters so we will accept based on the availability of space for display.
All conference attendees are welcome to submit posters of their work in progress. Doctoral students may not submit the same research presented in the doctoral student research competition.
