Student Abstracts

Read the following paragraphs carefully about submitting an abstract to the 45th Annual WKU Student Research Conference.


To participate in the WKU Student Research Conference students must apply to participate by submitting an abstract for their scholarly activities. Each WKU student is permitted to serve as the primary author on one presentation, poster, performance, video, display, or exhibit.

The primary author is the person who presents the work at the conference. If two students collaborated equally on the project, they should be listed as primary co-authors in the submission. Secondary authors are other students who contributed to the project and are encouraged to attend the conference but do not actually present the work.

Students who graduate in December are welcome to present their scholarly works at the spring conference as long as the projects were completed when they were students.
