Student Registration and Abstract Process

Students who wish to present their research must complete a 2-step process:

Step 1: Register to attend the meeting using the online registration form. Pre-registration is required of all presenting students. On-site registration is not permitted for presenting students due to the abstract approval process. Each Presenting Student completing a successful online registration will be sent an e-mail within 3 business days after the registration submission date. The e-mail will contain a Registration ID and instructions for the online abstract submission. You can not submit an abstract until your registration has been processed and this email has been sent to you. All presenters and co-presenters should submit separate registrations. Students who will have fees paid by their university, should select their payment as "Mailed Check" or "Pay by Phone or Fax". Then print the web confirmation form and submit it to the university as an invoice.

Step 2: Using the Registration ID and web link provided in the email confirmation, submit an abstract of 250 words or less to reserve space for the presentation. One abstract should be submitted for each presenting group. A primary presenter should be designated to submit the initial abstract. Once the abstract has been submitted, an Abstract Number will be assigned and provided in the web confirmation and e-mail. This Abstract Number together with your Registration Number can be used to edit the abstract. Additional presenters can be added to the abstract once they have registered to attend the meeting and received their own Registration Number. All presenters will need their Meeting Registration Number to submit or edit an abstract. Edits may be made through the abstract deadline. All accepted abstracts submitted by the deadline will be downloaded and prepared for inclusion in the conference program book. Accepted abstracts submitted after the deadline are included in the program addendum.

Abstracts for Presenting Student presentations are not accepted via e-mail.

Presentation Acceptance
Completed abstracts will receive approval for presentation within three business days after their abstract submission date. An email will be sent to the registrant of the approval or rejection of the abstract. If an abstract is rejected for some reason, monies paid for registration fees will be refunded. Sigma Xi is not, however, responsible for travel or lodging expenses incurred by the registrants.
