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 feel is relevant to our conference theme.
Once you're ready, fill out our submission proposal form.
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 perpectives.
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 come early to set up and practice. 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.
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
- Relevance of the topic to the conference theme
