All submissions will go through a review process, overseen by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies. Ideally, all submissions will be invited to participate in the symposium. If the number of submissions exceeds maximum capacity, a selection process will take place. Primary authors will be notified in late February 2018 whether their abstract has been accepted for presentation.

Based on the recommendations of the judges, cash awards will be presented to the outstanding oral presenter ($200) and runner-up ($100) in each session. For the poster session, cash awards will be provided to the outstanding poster presenters.Award winners will be announced during the award ceremony at 3:30pm in the USU Grand Salon.
