Abstract Requirements & Information

In order to register your oral and/or poster presentation, you must submit an abstract. The following information will help you identify what you need to gather for submission, and give you a few ideas on how to pull your information together.

NOTE: All abstracts accepted for Poster sessions and abstracts selected for the Oral Presentation will be published on the SRS website. Please email us at srs@nmt.edu if you don't wish your abstract to be published. 

What is an abstract?

An abstract is a short summary of your research. It should explain the purpose and plan you've used to do your research. For any research based project, you will generally need some type of abstract. For the SRS, your abstract must not exceed 250 words.

The SRS helps you hone your skills in creating abstracts though our Abstract Workshops.

NOTE: Registration is mandatory for the workshops.

There will be two Abstract Workshops offered:

  • Workshop #1: Monday, February 19, 6pm-7:30pm at Skeen Library, Tripp Room
  • Workshop #2: Tuesday, March 5, 6pm-7:30pm at Skeen Library, Tripp Room

Missed both abstract workshops? 

Go back to the main page, scroll down, and click the "SRS Workshops: recordings" tab. You'll be able to view the recordings of both abstract workshops.

You can also visit the Writing & Communication Lab, located next to the OSL (Skeen Library, 1st floor). Check the WCL website for walk-in hours and how to book an appointment. 

What type of abstract do I need for the SRS?

Your SRS abstract should briefly state the problem or purpose of the research, explain the supported hypothesis, indicate the theoretical or experimental plan used, summarize the principle finding, point out the major conclusions, and if applicable how your research fits into the designated field of study. It should also be understandable for an educated audience of readers outside of the designated field. It must not exceed 250 words.

Please do NOT include schemes, figures, graphs, tables, charts, or references.

All SRS participants are expected to be professional in the language that they use and to avoid language, humor, or comments that could be considered sexist or disrespectful by colleagues and other students. Remember, your abstracts will be published online, so be professional!
