About the Symposium

On the day of the Symposium, all day classes are suspended so that the college community can participate in the event. Oral presentations, poster sessions, art displays, and performances will run throughout the day. The Symposium is intended to allow the campus to focus on the varieties of research, project development and performance abilities of Juniata students.

Submission Process

The submission process includes a notice of intent to participate in the symposium, followed by the submission of a formal abstract. The notice of intent will include some basic information and the title of your project. The due date for this submission is March 2nd. Upon submission, you and your sponsor will receive an email notifying you that the information has been accepted. At a later time, students will receive an email prompt containing the appropriate link to submit their abstract. The deadline for abstract submission is March 31st. 

Students may opt to do a poster or an oral presentation. The oral presentation should be 12 minutes in length with 3 minutes for follow-up questions. Depending on the number of participants, some students may be asked to do a poster instead of an oral presentation. The poster submission deadline for the 2016 LAS is Thursday, 14 April. Details are in the link below.
