Student Symposium Registration Open!

Registration for the 2024 ACCA Student Symposium is finally open!  To register, please go to the following web page: Please complete your registration by 11:59 PM on Friday, April 5.

The symposium will take place on April 13th beginning at 9 AM in the Academic Sciences building at Lewis University, bldg. #12 on this map.  Parking will be readily available.  No pass or fee is needed.  A tour of our aviation facilities will be arranged should there be sufficient interest.

This year we are using Sched conference software (as was done for the ACCA Pedagogy Symposium).   As part of the registration process, Sched will ask you to setup an account with them, which can then be used for any event supported using Sched software (such as next year’s ACCA pedagogy and student symposia). In addition to personal contact information, student presenters will be invited to include the discipline for their presentation, a title of their presentation, an abstract, and the name of their faculty advisor. By default, all presentations will be assumed to be in poster format unless the student presenter indicates whether they wish to be considered for an oral presentation. Screenshots of the registration form is at the bottom of this post.

Coffee, tea, water, and snacks will be provided beginning at 8:00 AM.  Lunch will also be provided, with gluten free, dairy free, and vegan options available. 

Student presentations will default to poster presentations, unless an oral presentation is requested (during the registration process).  We plan to create as many parallel sessions as necessary to accommodate demand.  Oral presentations will be 12 minutes in length, with 3 minutes of Q&A.    We will collect PDF or Powerpoint files in advance so that they can be loaded before the start of each session.

Detailed scheduling and additional information for presenters will be e-mailed closer to the date, and will be available on the Sched symposium webpage.  If you have questions, please reach out to Christopher White at

We look forward to seeing you in April!
