The NCCC-167 business meeting is scheduled for 5:00 on March 8th, 2017.
Student Awards: Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentations for the graduate student session. The Larry Darrah Student Presentation Award will be given to the best student oral presentation. Graduate student abstracts should be submitted to Nick Lauter at email@example.com . The deadline for abstract submission is Thursday, February 16th at 5PM CST.
Abstracts should contain title, authors, author institution affiliations, and up to 300 words of text. All text should be 12-point New Times Roman and left justified. Please include all authors in the form last name, first name followed by a numerical footnote to indicate institutional affiliation. Include asterisk following presenting author’s name. List institution with footnotes following authors. Please adhere to formatting guidelines to assist with compilation of abstracts.
