The Symposium for the Promotion of Academic and Creative Enquiry, SPACE, is Pitt-Johnstown's annual undergraduate research conference.

The event provides a forum for Pitt-Johnstown students from all disciplines to present their research, creative projects, or scholarly work to the campus community.

Date: April 8, 2020
Location: Wellness Center

Symposium Overview

During the event, students from every discipline on campus are encouraged to share the results of their class projects, independent study projects, senior projects, internships, and creative works.  They can submit an abstract for an oral presentation, performance (such as a story or poetry reading), or poster presentation.

Abstract submission

Abstracts should be submitted to the campus services portal between February 19 and March 20, 2020.  All abstracts must be approved by a faculty or staff mentor before they can be accepted for the symposium.  Abstracts from community partners are also accepted.  Abstracts should include a brief summary (no more than 250 words) of the presentation to highlight the purpose of the work. 

Oral presentations usually take place in 15-minute intervals starting at 12:45 PM and ending around 5:00 PM with a break for poster sessions. 

Posters will be displayed from 11 AM to 4:15 PM.  Students should be present to answer questions during at least one poster session from 1:30 – 2:30 PM or 3:15 – 4:15 PM.  Abstract submissions for posters should include a preference for poster session 1 or 2.

During the event, students from every discipline on campus are given the opportunity to share the results of their class projects, independent study projects, senior projects, internships and creative works as talks or poster presentations or performances.
