Everything you need to know about registering for SRS

 

 

  • The Student Research Symposium will be held on March 4 and 5, 2022. Registration for the 2022 SRS is now closed. 
  • All current SDSU students engaged in research, scholarship, and creative activities with SDSU mentors are eligible to present. If you are in a JDP program with UCSD, you are also eligible.
  • Students may elect to make an oral presentation, a poster presentation, performance/film, or exhibit (art projects; paintings; sculptures; three dimensional display).
  • Students must work with an SDSU faculty mentor before submitting an abstract. You will be required to submit information about your mentor when you register:
    • Name
    • Department
    • Mentor Email Address
  • All entries must have an abstract written by the student and reviewed/edited by their faculty mentor. Mentors should not write the abstract, but guide the student in developing the abstract.
  • Abstracts should be 350 words or less and submitted in PDF format.
  • Duplicate abstracts submitted by different authors will be automatically rejected.
  • Oral and Poster abstracts must contain (see last year’s SRS program for Abstract examples):
    • Hypothesis or statement about the problem or project
    • Statement of the methods (research that utilizes existing/secondary data sets is acceptable)
    • Essential results or outcomes
    • Conclusion or summary (initial or preliminary results/data are acceptable)
  • Creative Arts and Performance abstracts must contain a short description of the piece with a summary of the process by which you created your work. Process is how you put what you have learned and researched into your performance or artwork. A sculptor could talk about media, a composer could talk about musical influences, an actor could talk about rehearsal techniques like Meisner or Viewpoints.
  • Only one student can be listed as the first author; additional students can be listed as co-authors. A student can be first author on only one abstract. However, there is no limit to the number of abstracts on which a student is a co-author.
  • Group presentations are defined as having two or more student authors. If a group's presentation scores are high enough to receive an award, award funds will be divided equally based upon the number of participants in that group.
  • Presentations, whether oral, poster, exhibit or performance/film, are organized by academic disciplines with divisions for undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Ten President's Awards ($500) will be selected from all oral presentations. In addition, all President's Award recipients will be invited to represent San Diego State at the 36th Annual CSU Student Research Competition at San Francisco State University. In total over 70 cash awards will be given in recognition of outstanding presentations or performances during the 2022 SRS.
  • The 2022 SRS will be held in person at the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union; however, a change in the California Department Public Health COVID-19 guidelines could result in a virtual SRS.
