Oberlin Summer Research Institute (OSRI) workshops serve to provide all Oberlin undergraduate researchers on campus in the summer with the skills they need to conduct and present their research most effectively.
This session will address what an abstract is, in what contexts abstracts are typically used, and how they function in relationship to presenting your research.
By the end of this session, you should have a first draft of an abstract that you can use for submission to a conference in your field. In advance of the session, please identify with your faculty or staff mentor an upcoming conference that may be appropriate for presenting your research, and come with the submission guidelines for that conference.
We will talk about how best to approach different elements of a conference submission, and include time for you to draft and receive feedback on those materials. Two separate sessions will be offered, one for STEM and the other for the humanities/social sciences. The STEM session will include a special focus on producing successful applications for the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS).
OSRI workshops are designed to meet the needs of students in various fields and disciplines in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and STEM.
All workshops take place from 4:30-6 p.m., each Wednesday in June and July.
