Project Directors and Students are required to submit four-six page extended abstracts for publication in the Symposium Volume. At the Symposium, students present their work in poster presentations and short talks. The Consortium supports students in these endeavors, providing guidelines related to production of graphics as well as an abstract template to assist text formatting. Students have the opportunity to submit abstracts for review prior to deadlines, receiving feedback from Consortium administration on graphics design and production, abstract organization, and writing in standard geoscience style. Students are encouraged to present the results of their research at regional and national meetings of professional organizations such as the Geological Society of America. Keck Projects have produced many peer-reviewed journal articles with student co-authors.
