2020 Call for Papers: Undergraduate Honors Conference

2020 Call



Call for Submissions 

Chicago, IL (Chicago O’Hare—Rosemont)

April 17-18, 2020

The 2020 Central States Communication Association (CSCA) President’s Undergraduate Honors Research Conference (UHRC) will be held Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18 during the 88th annual CSCA convention in Chicago, IL. The UHRC offers undergraduate students an opportunity to share their original research projects and provides a forum through which they can inquire about graduate study, meet graduate faculty, and interact with some of the leading scholars in the discipline of communication. The UHRC features a graduate school open house and an awards luncheon.

The UHRC is open to students who were enrolled as undergraduates during the 2019 calendar year (spring, summer, and/or fall). Submissions must have been completed by those students (not coauthored with faculty) during the aforementioned year. Only completed papers as WORD documents will be accepted as submissions. Papers must not exceed 25 pages (excluding references and tables/appendices), must conform to the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. The papers and corresponding contact information will be submitted through the online submission portal on the CSCA website.

After reviews are completed, the student author(s) will be notified of the submission’s status and the presentation format. If accepted for the conference, the submission may be programmed as a paper to be presented on a traditional panel, as a paper to be presented in a roundtable format, or as a poster to be presented at a poster session.

Both the student author(s) and the advisor must view submitting a conference paper as a professional endeavor and responsibility. Accordingly, the student author(s) agrees/agree to register for the conference and to present at the conference if the submission is programmed. The advisor agrees to ensure that the student author(s) will register for the conference and will present at the conference. Failure to do so may result in submissions under the direction of the advisor and from the advisor’s institution not being programmed at future conferences.

Submissions must be received no later than Friday, January 10, 2020.

Queries and submissions should be addressed to the current CSCA President:

Chad McBride
