RaCAS Mini-Symposium Application
The Research and Creative Activities Symposium (RaCAS) Planning Committee is now accepting proposals from CU Denver undergraduate and graduate students for mini-symposia to be held as part of the 21st Annual Research and Creative Activities Symposium (RaCAS) on Friday, 27 April 2018.

A mini-symposium is envisioned as being a session of 4-6 coordinated presentations on a single topic of substantial current interest and importance. It is normally two hours long. Following a brief introduction by the organizer, each speaker will generally have 12 minutes for presentation, with an additional three minutes for discussion. However, other formats will gladly be considered, such as readings of variable length or lightening talks. Organizers will be expected to design the mini-symposium to appeal to a relatively broad audience, as well as to promote the mini-symposium and RaCAS to other students, faculty and staff.

The deadline for submitting a proposal for a RaCAS 2018 mini-symposium is 16 February; all complete proposals will be reviewed, with 6-10 selected. Applicants will be notified on approximately 23 February if their proposal has been approved for RaCAS 2018.

If you have questions about RaCAS, the mini-symposium program, or this application, please email Dr. Lindsey Hamilton at Lindsey.Hamilton@ucdenver.edu
