One benefit of presenting at NCUR® is the opportunity for students to publish their work in the Conference Proceedings, produced annually by The University of North Carolina at Asheville and distributed to institutions across the nation. All student presenters at the Conference (including students in the performing/visual arts) are invited to submit manuscripts for review by the Proceedings Board. Submitting work to the Proceedings has many advantages, two of which are deemed especially important:  the opportunity to receive comments from faculty outside your college or university, thereby enhancing the paper for submission to other sources in your field, and  the opportunity to list your publication on your resume for graduate and professional school applications.
Paper submission by mail:
To avoid the late fee: Papers to be considered for the Conference Proceedings must be postmarked no later than February 27, 2008. A $30 processing fee must accompany all submissions.
With late fee: Papers postmarked February 28, 2008, or later will require an additional $30 late fee ($30 processing + $30 late fee = $60 total). The deadline for mailing late papers to the Proceedings Office is March 27, 2008. However, you may hand deliver your paper to the Proceedings Desk at the conference.
Paper submission by hand:
Students wishing to submit a paper after March 27, 2008, may do so. Please make sure you have your $30 submission fee and $30 late fee = $60 total. Hand deliver your Proceedings paper to the Proceedings Station at the conference during normal working hours on Thursday and Friday, April 11 and 12.
Last day to submit a paper:
Paper submissions will be accepted on Saturday, April 12. Papers submitted on Saturday, April 12, will be subject the $30 processing and $30 late fee. No papers will be accepted after 12:00 (noon) on Saturday, April 12, 2008.
Details regarding the Proceedings submission will be mailed to the accepted presenters in early February. Be sure that the mailing address on your NCUR Conference Application and Abstract submission form is correct for the spring 2008 semester. Primary authors will receive a copy of the Proceedings without additional charge. Please direct questions to Associate Editor Mila Lemaster at the Proceedings Office, (828) 251-6122, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
