How it works
Before you start on a proposal, seek advice from your course professor, instructor or TA. Projects may be submitted individually or as a group. We will consider new projects currently underway in this Fall semester, and even a project from the past that you would like to present.
Once you're ready, fill out our submission proposal form.
After submitting the form, please submit your final project* via the approach you chose in the form.
If you chose:
- Email link: please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an attached link or the file of your final project.
- Vault: please upload your final project to Vault and email email@example.com with a shareable link of your project from Vault.
Please submit your final project by January 15th, 2021. (Note: If you are submitting as a group, please make sure only one of the group members submit the final project and please include your project title.)
*Final projects can be submitted in the form of links, words, PDFs, pictures etc. Please feel free to attach any supplementary documents that help explain your project for School Ambassadors to review during the adjudication.
Once submissions are closed, our three faculty ambassadors will go through all the submissions and curate a selection of works to be shared/presented/performed/exhibited in the conference. They will assign the presenters to panels that will be able to discuss a particular topic from multiple perspectives.
If your submission is selected, you will need to prepare a ten to fifteen minute presentation, performance, or an exhibition of your work. A workshop is hosted by the faculty ambassadors to help you through this process.
As a presenter at the FCAT Undergraduate Conference, you will be eligible to receive recognition on your Co-Curricular Record. The CCR is an official university document referencing your co-curricular involvement at SFU, listing your activities outside of classes.
Everyone is invited to the FCAT Undergraduate Conference. Presenters are expected to be prepared to present at their designated time. Please make sure you have access to a computer with a working camera. Official events will begin in the afternoon. Invite friends, family, and co-workers who would be interested in work being produced in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology.

About the Co-Curricular Record
How to get CCR recognition once your proposal has been accepted to the conference:
1. Pre-conference: Attend and complete at least 1 preparatory workshop.
2. Conference: Participate at the conference as a presenter**
3. Post-conference: Complete and submit a brief reflective assignment no later than 1 week after the conference.
4. Once you complete all the above, your name will be submitted to the CCR Admin Team to add the FCAT Undergraduate Conference Presenter role to your CCR.
*In order to receive CCR recognition, you cannot be receiving academic credit for your participation in the conference.
**The term presenter is used to encompass any type of involvement as outlined in your accepted conference proposal
Given the diverse nature of FCAT and of the works that may be submitted, adjudicators will make sure each of the categories and each of FCAT's schools are well represented at the conference.
Depending on the quality and number of submissions, between 30 - 50 submissions will be chosen to present at the conference.
Successful applicants will be short-listed on the following criteria:
- Interest of the topic to the conference's audience
- Quality of the work
- Clarity of the proposal/presentation
- Significance of the issues addressed
