    Abstract Submission Process

    Please note that our abstract submission process is separate from this registration form. You must submit a registration form prior to submitting the abstract as the registration confirmation will provide you with a unique identifier needed for abstract submission. This abstract will appear in the Intersections archives. The abstract is central to your application and must provide a succinct overview of your work. Please turn off review tracking and finalize the abstract in consultation with your Faculty Research Mentor prior to submitting it. Upon submission, the system will forward the abstract to the faculty research mentor who must provide the Undergraduate Research Office with their final approval. Please use the CWRUnet ID email of your faculty research mentor when submitting your abstract (if possible). This will allow the abstract to be routed properly. 

    Faculty Endorsement

    Students are required to include a faculty name as their project advisor and/or endorser of their research presentation. It is understood that many undergraduate students engage in research and creative projects within collaborative teams of faculty, post doctoral mentors, graduate students, laboratory staff and undergraduate students centered on CWRU faculty members' larger research endeavors. In addition to approving the overall readiness of the presentation, faculty advisers and/or endorsers are approving the undergraduate student's own role and authorship of the project and results of what may be a piece of a larger project.

    Students need not have conducted the research on the Case Western Reserve campus to present at Intersections. Students must provide the name, institution and email of the non-CWRU mentor with whom they worked. This person must also approve the research presentation in the same way as CWRU faculty.
