October 29, 2020
Led by Eastern Illinois University

The Illinois Innovation Network’s East-Central Illinois Hub, hosted by Eastern Illinois University, will hold the IIN Research Conference on Sustainability on October 29, 2020. The virtual conference is the IIN’s first event aimed at generating new research collaborations in the broadly-defined area of sustainability, which is a shared focus of all 15 IIN hubs.

Conference organizers invite students, faculty and researchers to submit poster presentations/research paper proposals related to sustainability within Illinois. The conference will be held in an online format and is open to any student, faculty member or researcher associated with any of the IIN Hubs. All participants will participate remotely from their own locations.

Broadly defined, sustainability research poster presentations and/or paper proposals may be related to research projects on the environment, health and well-being, sustainable food and water practices, business practices that support economic growth, education practices and governmental policies related to sustainability.

Research poster presentations and/or paper proposals should include a title, 300 word abstract, and author(s) contact information. Conference submission information is located here. Proposals should be submitted by September 15, 2020. Additional questions about submissions may be sent to Professor Ryan Burge, at rpburge@eiu.edu.

Awards of $250 each will be provided to the best presentations for an undergraduate student, a graduate student and a post-doctoral researcher.
