The deadline for abstracts has been extended until January 21st, 2021.

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract for a paper, extended abstract, or student poster to share at the 2021 ASEE St. Lawrence Section’s Annual Conference.

We welcome all those who are interested (faculty, researchers, graduate students, post-docs, and undergraduates)! Suggested and potential topics include:

  • best practices
  • remote teaching and learning
  • the hybrid classroom
  • accommodating students’ and faculty’s unique needs in a time of crisis
  • work to share related to engineering or engineering technology education beyond this year’s theme

Abstracts for a webinar workshop or panel presentation will also be considered.

Student posters on any engineering- or engineering-education-related topics are encouraged.

If you had an abstract accepted for last year’s conference, we invite you to resubmit your abstract for the opportunity to share your work with an audience this spring. Please include a note explaining that it was accepted for the 2020 conference. Submissions from last spring’s conference will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.\

Requirements, recommendations, and formatting


  • Abstracts should be less than 5000 characters in length, well-written, and succinctly summarize the work to be presented.
  • All abstracts should be written in good English and proofread.
  • Good practices indicate an abstract should contain enough new information, contain a clear objective and/or hypothesis, a clear and concise summary of essential methods, results, and conclusions.
  • For work in progress, abstracts should disclose primary findings and should avoid promissory statements such as “experiments are in progress” or “results will be discussed”.
