Important Deadlines

NOI Deadline: Wednesday, April 6th (midnight PST)

Students must submit their notice of intent (NOI) by Wednesday March 29th. You only need to include basic information in the NOI: tentative title, author(s), brief description of the work, and the main contact's email address. This will help our organizers with planning.

Submit your NOI form here. 

Final Submission Deadline: Wednesday, April 26 (midnight PST)

If you are part of a team of researchers, each of you needs to RSVP, but only one of you needs to submit the work.

RSVP opens mid March.
