FAQs

Frequently asked questions

  • Should I go?
    • Yes!
  • Can I submit an abstract for work that is under submission?
    • Yes, from our part. The submission is not for a publication, but for a lightning talk on any subject you want your peers from the region to learn about.
  • Can I submit work that has been published?
    • Yes.
  • Are only professors allowed to submit?
    • No. In fact, we encourage students to submit and present!
  • Can a submission have multiple authors?
    • Yes, please put the presenter as the first author.
  • Are all submissions going to be accepted?
    • Not necessarily. We will judge all submissions for quality and, if there are more eligible submissions than slots for the day, we will have to select a subset.
  • Can I go if I don’t submit anything or if my talk proposal doesn’t get accepted?
    • Yes! But notice that spots are limited, and you must register!
  • Posters: Will easels be provided that are long enough to hang a 44″ wide poster? Can I bring a rolled up poster? How will I fix it?
    • We will provide easels, backing, and thumbtacks for posters. Poster dimensions should be at most 841 x 1189mm (33x46in), and both portrait and landscape orientation.
  • Where should I park my car?
    • While there are no special arrangements for event parking, you can check this page for general BU parking information. Granby Lot and Kenmore Lot are the closest to the venue.
  • What happens after the event?
    • There is no official gathering after the event, but we will try to organize some informal gathering(s) afterwards.
