Abstracts are peer reviewed on a competitive basis by a joint student-faculty selection committee. Accepted participants orally present their research on a panel moderated by a faculty discussant. Additionally, all participants will have the opportunity to publish their work through PC’s Digital Commons. Examples of papers from past conferences can be viewed at http://digitalcommons.providence.edu/auchs/. Abstracts can be submitted via https://goo.gl/forms/kQ1Bw3UVfHoWKM2F2 by February 1, 2017.
