Abstract Submission

Abstracts are invited for oral or poster presentations at the AVS Prairie Chapter Symposium on September 5th. Faculty, staff, postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate researchers — both, AVS members and non-members — are welcome to submit abstracts. Researchers of all levels may choose between an oral (15-minute presentation including time for questions) or a poster presentation.

Students are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts — the AVS Prairie Chapter Symposium is a low-stress event, ideal to help students gain more conference-presentation experience and possibly start their award collection. Students who present posters will be entered into a competition for a share of a $1,000 prize split among the three best student poster presentations (avs.org/about-avs/chapters/avs-regional-chapters/prairie/awards/).

A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest of the AVS can be extracted from avs.org/about-avs/chapters/avs-divisions/ and /technical groups/

Abstract Submission Guidelines:

Submit a one-page abstract to avsprairie2024@mrl.illinois.edu before the deadline of August 16th, following the abstract template (docx file HERE).
