Call for Papers

The 2024 CURIO symposium will showcase undergraduate research and creative activity that was undertaken by students in the College of Arts and Humanities. A panel of judges will review all presentations and select winners in each presentation category. For interested students, CURIO slide presentations and pre-recordings will be archived in the CURIO Digital Commons website.

Presenters and their faculty advisors will receive an email confirming their acceptance, with guidelines for submitting a Digital Commons Permission form (link) and for uploading their presentation notes and slides or pre-recorded videos. In April, before the symposium, all confirmed presenters will receive an email confirming the time and room scheduled for their presentations. A "best in kind" prize will be awarded to winning presentations and posters at the Symposium in Statesboro and at the Armstrong campus.

General Expectations
  • Practice your presentation before recording. It will help if you create a script or, at minimum, a very detailed outline
  • Your recording should be no more than 10 minutes and visually decent.
  • Aim to explain your project, results, and significance in a manner that is accessible to an educated non-specialist audience
  • Try to avoid jargon or, if you must, make sure you define your terms
  • If you use slides, keep them clear and concise and avoid making them text-heavy
  • If you will appear on camera, dress professionally
  • If you are filming yourself have the light behind the camera, not behind you (this applies to sunlight through windows as well)
  • Speak clearly and with energy
Share or Upload Your Video File

All video files should be in .MOV or .MP4 format.

We will include a portrait of each presenter on the symposium page. The best photos will be portrait style taken from the shoulders up (but we can crop, if necessary). Photos will be uploaded/shared into the same google form as the videos.

All photos should be in JPEG format.

The name, username and photo associated with your Google account will be recorded when you upload files and submit this form.
