Research submissions for CCI’s 37th Annual Research Symposium are encouraged from all CCI faculty, CICS researchers, and students at all levels — undergraduates, masters and doctoral.  New this year:

  1. CCI’s Graduate Student Association is sponsoring the poster contest!   The poster session is for completed works or works-in-progress (please specify), and submissions are peer reviewed.  
  2. “Share your Research” session.  Share a poster presented elsewhere.  There is no review process since this is a community information event.
