The sessions’ purpose is to give researchers the opportunity to share their work, receive feedback from peers, and improve their papers. Research should be current or ongoing.

The presentation won’t count as being the paper’s publication, and CCI won’t hold a copyright. 

Researchers and faculty at public institutions in CCI deemed eligible by their home institutions to serve as a Principal Investigator (PI) on an external grant could apply. 

Students must have been enrolled at a Virginia institution of higher education at the time of the Symposium (April 15-16, 2024).
