CASA 2018 Research Flash Talk - Call for Presentations

The CASA Faculty Flash Talks are a rapid-fire set of five-minute presentations, each delivered by a different faculty member in the College, highlighting ongoing research and projects. The goal for the event is to disseminate the ongoing research of the College to our own faculty, staff, and students, as well as to others in the University and the surrounding communities, with the hope of sparking points of collaboration and future growth.

With support from the Dean’s office, the CASA Research Committee is hosting a College-wide event to promote the ongoing research and collaboration of the CASA faculty. The CASA Faculty Research Flash Talks with the Community will be held on the evening of Wednesday, March 21, 2018, starting at 5:30 PM (refreshments) at the Varsity Theater, 418 S. Illinois Avenue, Carbondale, IL. Flash talk presentations will begin at 6 PM.

All CASA faculty are encouraged to participate. This year, we would like to invite all faculty members from programs that will be merging with any of our CASA programs to participate and share their research activity.  This will be an excellent opportunity for faculty networking and creating a foundation for future cross-disciplinary research collaboration.

Each faculty member interested in participating will be given 3-5 minutes to briefly introduce their current, concluding, or proposed research to an audience consisting of interested faculty, staff and invited community members from both the University and regional area. Our hope is to have at least two to three presentations from each of CASA’s departments/schools and invited merging programs. In addition, faculty posters (tabletop trifold only) and textbooks are also invited for display.

If you are interested in presenting your research, please submit a short abstract, not to exceed 200 words, briefly describing the research you will present. These will not be peer reviewed. However, we are planning to post all accepted abstracts on the OpenSIUC online repository. The submission is simply to gauge interest and to use in the creation of a small booklet for the event.  Considering a broader audience, you might want to answer three questions when you are preparing your abstract: What is it? Why is it of interest? How can the community be further involved?

The goal is for this event to serve as a catalyst for collaboration both among the faculty in the newly created schools.

Abstract proposals are due to Mary Nemetsky (mnemet@siu.edu) no later than 5:00pm on Thursday, March 1, 2018.  If you have any questions, please contact Mary Nemetsky (email above) or call 453-8840.
