Second Draft of General Audience Abstract due THURSDAY, JULY 21

The second draft of your Abstract for a General Audience is due Thursday, July 21.

Be sure to make a "Writing Conference" appointment FIRST before emailing the abstract.  Log in using the INTERN INFO menu option.

Include the DAY of your appointment on the FIRST line of your abstract before your title line so that I can have your abstract read in time for your appointment followed by the name of the department you are a part of from one of these four choices: (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, NSLS-II, CFN (3) Biology/Environmental, or (4) Engineering/Other.
NOTE: These four areas are slightly different from the original four mentioned in the presentations. Your abstract/project should be labeled appropriately. In addition, projects considered as part of the "NSLS II/CFN" category must be scientific work done at NSLS II or CFN; projects that involve engineering-based work at these facilities should be categorized under "Engineering/Other."

ATTACH the abstract as an MS Word compatible document to an e-mail and send it to ONLY with this subject: Abstract, Second Draft.

For more info on completing the abstract, see General Audience Abstract suggestions.
