Note on abstracts with
multiple undergraduate authors/co-presenters:
Undergraduate presenters for a project will be listed in the program in the order
submitted on the abstract:
please be sure to check with your faculty mentor whether it is appropriate to list
by relative contribution/significance of role in project, alphabetically
(if all students have an equal role), etc.
For example, it is possible that a student may be listed on two poster projects --but
may have a primary role on one project/secondary role on another project.
