Reviewing Abstracts

The Symposium website allows faculty to review and either approve or decline submitted abstracts.

When a student officially submits an application and abstract online, it triggers an email to the student's faculty mentor. This email explains that an abstract has been submitted and needs to be reviewed and approved.

The email will provide a link to and log-in instructions for the Symposium site. Please log-in using your MyID and password. Once logged-in, you will be asked to indicate the times when you are available to attend the 2017 Symposium. With this information CURO will attempt to schedule your student's presentations so that you will be able to attend.

Once you have entered your available times, a list of all of your students and their abstracts will appear. You must review each abstract and either approve or decline it. If you approve it, the abstract will be printed as is in the 2017 CURO Symposium Book of Abstracts and the student will be scheduled for an oral or poster presentation. If you decline it, you will need to briefly explain why. Your student will then have a brief window during which to revise and re-submit the abstract for a second review.

While reviewing the abstract, please make sure your student has selected the appropriate presentation format (oral or poster). If you think the student needs to select an alternate format, please decline the abstract and list the preferred format in the explanation box.

Please note the poster session can accommodate a maximum of 300 posters; if 300 poster abstracts have been approved students will no longer have the option of applying for a poster presentation.

Applicants will be notified via email of faculty approval or decline.
