Undergraduate Submissions

Below is information about undergraduate submissions — posters, of course, but also the special and time-sensitive process for paper submissions. This information can also be found on the Annual Meeting page of our website ( Please circulate to your colleagues and students who may be interested. We look forward to seeing you in New York. The meeting will be February 26-March 1 at the Millennium Broadway Hotel.


As has been the tradition, the standard method of presentation for undergraduates will be posters that will be displayed in several separate sessions during the heart of the conference. Undergraduates interested in participating should submit their poster themes using the Abstract Submission System available on the ESS website ( under the Annual Meeting tab. Please indicate that you are an undergraduate student and ensure that your submittal is entered by December 15.

Paper Presentations

A few undergraduate students will be selected to present in regular panel sessions.  Undergraduate students wishing to have their work considered for a regular paper session rather than the Undergraduate Poster Sessions must submit their abstracts into the ESS abstract system available on the ESS website ( under the Annual Meeting tab by October 31.  Please be sure to indicate that you are an undergraduate student. Dr. Shelley White will review those submissions and will notify the selected students.  Those students who are not selected for paper presentation will be rolled over into the poster sessions unless we hear that the student does not so wish.  If your abstract is accepted for a paper session, the completed paper must be sent to Dr. White by December 10 for final review.
