The competition takes place entirely online and there is no physical venue, thereby completely eliminating the barrier of travel and registration costs. Instead, all submitted abstracts are carefully peer-reviewed by the URNCST Journal editorial team, and all accepted abstracts will be published as a single abstract book in the URNCST Journal and given a DOI and citation. Thus, authors have a pre-specified publication date to look forward to, provided that their abstract is accepted. All participants will receive two detailed peer-review evaluation forms to help them improve their research project, regardless of their submission’s outcome.

August 25-29, 2018
