Q: How do I receive a Presenter Identification Number (PIN) if I am a co-presenter?
A: If you are a group or co-presenter, your PIN was emailed to the primary presenter or the person who submitted your abstract - as well as the faculty advisor - upon notification of acceptance. You should contact that person, or the NCUR® 2008 office, to obtain your PIN. Note that there is one PIN per accepted abstract and that PIN applies to all presenters of a given abstract.

A: Yes. All presenters and co-presenters must register for NCUR® 2008 in order to attend and present.
Q: May faculty advisors and mentors present with their student advisees at NCUR®?
A: No. NCUR® is a presentation opportunity for undergraduate research students only. The only avenue for faculty presentation at NCUR® is through the Faculty Administrator Network (FAN) sessions. Information on FAN submission is available athttp://www.salisbury.edu/ncur22/fan.html.
Q: May parents attend their student's presentation? If so, do they need to register for the conference?
A: As a general rule, all persons wishing to attend the conference must register and pay for participation. We will make an exception to this rule for parents who wish to attend their son or daughter's presentation. Parents may send their names and the name of their participating child to email@example.com. We will provide a Visitor pass that allows them to attend the one session where their child is presenting. This pass is not valid for lunches, dinner, speakers or tours. These activities are limited to paid conference participants. Parents can pick up their Visitor pass at the registration tables during registration hours.
Q: Can I mail or fax in my abstract?
A: No. All abstracts must be submitted using the online abstract submission form. To maintain consistency, streamline the process and help preserve our natural resources, we require that all abstracts be submitted using this process.
If your abstract contains special characters that cannot be typed into the form, you may include a link to a web version of your abstract. Please see the online form and instructions for more information.
Q: Can a student, faculty member or administrator submit more than one abstract for consideration for presentation?
A: NCUR encourages the submission of only one abstract from a sole presenter. If a student, faculty member or administrator wishes to submit more than one abstract, he/she must use a separate email address for each abstract.
Q: Can I request a specific presentation date and time?
A: While we will attempt to accommodate special requests, we cannot guarantee it. Special requests should be emailed to the NCUR® 22 office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage participants to attend all three days of the conference as it is an excellent opportunity to see, hear and support fellow researchers and their presentations.
Q: Do I make hotel reservations through the NCUR® website?
A: No. NCUR® 22 has secured room blocks and special rates at local hotels as a convenience to our attendees. A list of all participating hotels, rates and contact information is posted atwww.salisbury.edu/ncur22/lodging.html. NCUR® is not involved in the hotel reservations process. Each participant or school is responsible for securing their own hotel reservations./p>
