Completed Empirical Research Paper (stand-up presentation)

Accepted papers in this category will be eligible for the “Conference Paper Awards.” To be selected, the paper must solidly demonstrate sound theoretical development, proper research design, pertinent data collection methods, appropriate and relevant data analyses and exhibit a possible solution to real-world problems. Students must submit a Structured Abstract (2,000 words max., in English, including tables/figures, but excluding references) by the deadline (Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, USA) to be considered for this track. Students who do not submit a Completed Empirical Research Paper will not qualify their paper for oral presentation consideration. Final revised 1-page abstracts must be submitted by the deadline (Friday, November 8th, 2019, 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time, USA), or they will not be part of the conference program or published in the Conference Proceedings.
Work-in-Progress Paper (poster)

Accepted papers in this category will be eligible for the first annual “Conference Best Poster Award.” The intent of this track is to encourage presentation of research projects that are not completed but might be of significant interest to the research community. Both conceptually- and empirically-based papers on “work-in-progress” would fall into this category. A paper based strictly on a “research idea” or “literature review” does not qualify for this track. Graduate students who wish to present a paper based on their research proposals for master’s theses, doctoral dissertations, or undergraduate honors research should submit papers that present significant theoretical or conceptual developments, research propositions or hypotheses, proposed methods and/or a data analysis plan. Students must submit an Abstract (1,000 words max., in English including tables/figures, but excluding references) by the deadline (Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, USA), to be eligible for consideration in the poster track. Final revised 1-page abstracts must be submitted by the deadline (Friday, November 8th, 2019, 11:59pm PST, USA), or they will not be part of the conference program or published in the Conference Proceedings.

References and citations should be in APA style format.

  • Author names, contact information, title, short abstract (120 words max) and key words should be directly entered in the EasyChair system. Do not create any separate Word document; no cover page is necessary.

  • Students are required to save a research paper in a pdf document and upload it to the EasyChair system. The first page of the research paper should begin with the paper title. Author names and affiliations should not be included in any part of the paper and should not appear in the document name.

  • All accepted papers (both oral presentation and poster) will be published as 1-page extended abstracts in the conference proceedings. The final abstract must be submitted by the deadline (Friday, November 8th, 2019,11:59pm PST, USA), or they will not be part of the conference program or published in the Conference Proceedings. Detailed proceedings instructions will be announced upon paper acceptance notification.

Note:

Faculty Endorsement of Student Research: All submissions should have a faculty co-author. The student(s) submitting the paper must be in the first author position(s) and must be the conference presenter(s). Students submitting papers must list the name and email address of the sponsoring faculty member. As a reminder, papers submitted must be original, cannot have been published/presented or accepted in a journal or another conference proceedings. Students are encouraged to solicit feedback on their papers during the conference and to submit their final completed work for journal publication.
