Note that while we ask that you indicate the most appropriate format to present your work at the summit, should your abstract be selected, the conference committee may ask clarifying questions and will ultimately determine the accepted format.

*Presenting during the Gold Mining session is reserved for Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) members only. Gold Mining is an opportunity to give shorter presentations to smaller audiences, who will rotate through a cycle of Gold Mining presentations held at round tables. Participants are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters and the more intimate experience fosters deeper dialogue. More details will be provided for selected projects.
