CAMWS President Anne Groton and the Program Committee for the 116th CAMWS meeting in Birmingham, Alabama, announce a call for abstracts for undergraduate poster presentations at CAMWS 2020. Submissions may be on any topic related to the ancient world. Students whose abstracts are accepted by the committee are expected to present their posters at a session on Friday morning, March 27, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham -- The Wynfrey Hotel. A monetary prize will be awarded to the undergraduate who gives the best presentation of an outstanding poster. The winner of this prize will be announced at the Annual CAMWS Business Meeting on Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Use this application form to submit an abstract for the poster session by 11:59 pm on Wednesday, January 15, 2020. All applicants must be current members of CAMWS at the time of application and receive the endorsement of a professor at their institution. Details about the size and format of the posters will be provided in acceptance notices, but these Natural Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference guidelines for poster preparation are a good place to start.
Please note that CAMWS has some limited funds available to support undergraduate travel to the conference. For more information, see James Ruebel Undergraduate Travel Award. Applications for this award are due on January 30.
