Undergraduate submissions must have a faculty sponsor. It is the responsibility of the faculty sponsor to screen the entries for quality, completeness, and accuracy and to be actively involved in the submission process. All research/teaching/design submissions presented at the symposium will be included in the Proceedings. An author whose work is accepted, an author from a team of researchers, or the undergraduate faculty sponsor must attend the symposium and present the work as well as register for the symposium.
File 1 contains a cover page with title of paper and name and contact information (address, phone number, email) for all authors. Corresponding author is designated. All symposium information will be sent to corresponding author only.
File 2 contains an abstract in English for review (2 pages maximum, single spaced, in a Word.doc format; one inch margins, font size 12, Times New Roman). Include the title (single spaced, centered, maximum 30 words) but no identifying information about author(s) or professional affiliation(s).

Guidelines for Design Submissions
Work must have been executed within the last 5 years. Work must be constructed by the designer(s) and must be completed at time of submission. Undergraduate student member submissions must have a faculty sponsor. It is the responsibility of the faculty sponsor to screen the entries for quality, completeness, and accuracy and to be actively involved in the submission process. The sponsor will retrieve the design work at the symposium if the student does not attend. All design work presented at the symposium will be included in the Proceedings. A designer whose work is accepted, or the sponsor, must attend the symposium and register for the symposium.
Abstracts should present designs that have not been published or presented at other professional conferences. Use Times New Roman, font size 12, for all text, including titles. Prepare three electronic files. In preparation, photograph images of your design. Take a copy of a copyright agreement with you and obtain signatures of the photographer and, if appropriate, the model as needed. Items should be photographed as they would be used (i.e., apparel must be photographed against a plain background on a live model, mannequin, or dress form). Non-apparel items must be displayed as they would be exhibited. If submitting an item of apparel, photograph the following: full front view, full back view of apparel items or different angle view of non-apparel item, and an interesting design or construction detail. If submitting another type of design (e.g., drawing, object) photograph the work to best convey its attributes.
File 1 contains a cover page with title of your design and name and contact information (address, phone number, email) for all authors.
File 2 contains a title, a description in English to accompany your design submission (2 pages total, single spaced, in a Word.doc format; one inch margins) and photos of your design. In this description include the following: the purpose of the piece, the design process, including how you implemented the process, the techniques used to create the piece, and the materials used. There should be no identifying information about the designers in this statement. Images should be no larger than 2 ½‖ x 3 1/2‖ in portrait orientation (50% of original image). You are responsible for color management, cropping, quality of the images, and proper placement in the submission.
File 3 contains file 2 with the addition of authors, institution, and country. File 3 will be used for the symposium proceedings. This will go directly into the proceedings once the submission has been accepted for presentation. There will be no opportunity for changes.
