Since 2008, the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, the Office of Research Development, and the Department of Instructional Technology have collaborated to provide a vibrant forum for University-wide research. The event welcomes submissions from both faculty and students and has grown annually, developing from a single day's event into a week-long celebration.
UIW's research enterprise provides for the development of critical thinking, problem solving, interdisciplinary perspectives, and a social and moral orientation that informs the questions explored and application to the world in which we live. The research presented showcases disciplinary accomplishment and illustrates UIW's commitment to academic excellence.
As we continue to expand and grow the Research Week events, we seek to develop a wholly representative celebration – beyond the poster presentation. Please see additional submission categories below.
Faculty, staff, and students of all levels and disciplines are encouraged to submit applications for Performing Arts Presentations, Podium Presentations, Poster Presentations, or Visual Arts Displays.
Submissions may describe either a completed project or a project in progress (must include preliminary results and analysis).
Projects presented elsewhere over the last academic year are welcome – please remember to complete Research Week forms as requested, regardless of the format of submissions to a previous conference. Student abstracts should be accompanied by faculty mentor endorsement.
Submissions are due no later than November 17, 2014 at midnight. For details on abstract and artist's statement preparation and submission guidelines, see the our Call for Submissions.
