Rethinking and Remaking our World for the 21st Century

2017 ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium  |  November 4th  |  Southern Illinois University

Hosted by SIU’s College of Applied Sciences and Arts [CASA], the ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium is open to faculty, professionals, and students from any discipline, university, or professional organization. This year we are accepting proposals for oral presentations, panel discussions, posters (students only) and workshops that will provide opportunities for students, researchers, and practitioners to discuss the influence and impact of the applied sciences and arts on the future of our planet and our society.

CASA consists of a diverse range of programs that all center on the tangible application of knowledge and technology in the world. We are open to any thoughtful interpretations or reinterpretations of the conference theme as it applies to these fields:

Allied Health | Dental Hygiene, Health Care Management and Administration, Mortuary Science and Funeral Service, Radiologic Sciences, Physical Therapy, and Health Informatics 

Architecture, Design, and the Built Environment | Architecture, Interior Design, Fashion Design and Merchandising, Construction Management, and Public Safety Management

Transportation | Automotive Technology, Aviation Management and Flight, and Aviation Technologies

Information Systems and Applied Technologies | Electronic Systems Technologies, Information Systems Technologies, and Technical Resource Management

All initial proposals will be submitted as a 300-400 word abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will then have the option of submitting a full paper for an additional double-blind peer review. Top accepted papers will be published in The Journal of Applied Sciences and Arts. In addition, the student poster competition  will  provide a forum for students actively engaged in research or significant course projects to present their work to a jury of esteemed educators and professionals. Top posters will be awarded monetary prizes.




The event will be held at SIU's Transportation Education Center [TEC] on Saturday, November 4th. The registration desk will open at 8:00am and the day will conclude with an Awards Ceremony.  For the full Symposium schedule, please click on the link below.
