Communication Conference Submission Deadline


Friday, April 11, 2014 5:00 PM

Submit an original 8-25 page research paper to the second annual Communication Conference on May 3rd for the chance to win $100.

The Alpha Beta Theta Chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Honorary Fraternity in Communication, invites research paper submissions for its 2nd Annual Communication Conference to be held May 3, 2014 on the campus of Oregon State University. An academic conference such as this allows students to share their research with interested peers and faculty. Students will be allotted approximately twelve minutes to summarize their research. They will then receive verbal feedback from a faculty member.

Submissions are accepted from both undergraduate and graduate students. Submissions will be reviewed by faculty for graduate student papers and faculty and graduate students for undergraduate student papers. The top undergraduate paper and the top graduate paper will receive a certificate and a $100 Visa gift card.

Papers should be typed, double-spaced and follow either the APA or MLA style manual. Pages should be a minimum of 8 pages and a maximum of 25. Papers may consider any topic relevant to communication research including but not limited to argumentation, criticism, communication theory, conflict management, negotiation, rhetoric, and rhetorical theory. Papers may have been written for a course. The expectation is that this paper undertakes original research. Consequently, literature reviews or internship papers would not be appropriate.

When you submit a paper, should it be accepted, you are committing to attending the conference. You will be notified within two weeks if your paper has been accepted.

The time and place of the conference will be dependent upon the number of submissions and acceptances. Lambda Pi Eta’s Spring Induction and Awards ceremony will be held after the delivery of papers. A reception will close out the day.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 11 at 5 p.m. An electronic version of your paper with a separate title page (these should be in two different files) should be emailed to Dr. Goodnow at tgoodnow@oregonstate.edu. The title page should include your name, contact information, title of the paper and any course for which the paper was originally submitted. The paper itself should NOT have your name or the course for which it was written ANYWHERE on the paper. Papers are blind reviewed, meaning that the reviewer does not know who wrote it.
