Abstract Submission Instructions

Info for GREAT 2023 Abstract submission coming soon. 


Judging panels consist of three individuals: two faculty members and one postdoc or student (2nd year or above), depending on the session. Judges are needed from every college.

Graduate students may compete in either oral (10 min) or poster formats. Postdoctoral fellows can compete in oral presentations (10 min). Students and Postdocs may also compete in Flash Talks (3 min). The Flash Talk Competition is judged by 3 faculty members and 3 non-faculty members in order to assess effective communication to a broad and non-specialized audience.

Details regarding the judges' scheduled time, along with abstracts and score sheets for your session, will be provided prior to GREAT week.

The graduate students and postdoctoral fellows appreciate your time and expertise in judging their research presentations! If you have any questions please contact the Graduate College (, 405-271-2085).
