Abstracts (or descriptions) should contain the following information:
- A brief introduction to the project/subject area
- A hypothesis, project goal, or specific aim
- A brief description of the methods used to address the aim/goal

The 2024 UTC Spring Research and Arts Conference will be held in person at the UTC University Center. However, presenters are required to upload presentation materials (poster files, slide decks) to the ForagerOne by Symposium online portal by 11:00 pm on Wednesday, April 3, 2024.
*Why are we asking presenters to upload to the portal? All presentations submitted to the portal will be archived online, and the conference abstract program will be generated in the portal. A copy of the program will be posted on the conference website.
ForagerOne by Symposium Media Upload Options
Media Option 1: Upload a PDF of the Poster or oral (slide deck) presentation.
If you are presenting a poster or oral presentation at the conference, and you would like to upload your poster file or oral presentation slide deck ONLY, select this option. The poster or slide deck presentation file must be saved as a PDF file. The PDF file must not exceed 10MB. Use Smallpdf.com or another online tool to compress your file if necessary.
NOTE: If you select this format option, you may also upload a video to accompany the poster or slide deck presentation. This is completely OPTIONAL.
Media Option 2: Video/Screencast only
If you would like to share a video presentation, slide deck screencast, or performance (3-15 minutes) without a poster file or slide deck, select this option.
NOTE: If you select this option, you will NOT upload the video or screencast file; rather, you will record the video, and upload the media file to YouTube. Please make the YouTube video settings UNLISTED**. You will include the link to the YouTube video within the submission form.
