Undergraduate Conference

There will be a conference in May at Western Michigan University having to do with bioethics. Those of you that have taken my Ethics, Bioethics, or Philosophy and Public Issues courses should consider submitting a paper. I'd be happy to help you it up before you submit it. Also, I suspect that you could get some funding via our Undergraduate Research Award to attend the conference. Let me know if you're interested in this and I'll help you complete all the forms.

Undergraduate Biomedical Ethics Symposium

May 5, 2012
Hosted by University Center for the Humanities
2500 Knauss Hall

Biomedical ethics papers should be 3000 words (about 20 minutes presentation time) and prepared for blind review (name and identifying information should appear nowhere on the paper). Attach your paper and separate cover page that contains name, address, phone number, e-mail address and school affiliation as a Word or PDF file to the e-mail. The e-mail subject line should read “Undergraduate Biomedical ethics Paper Submission”

Submission deadline March 1st, 2012

Accepted authors will be notified by March 15th. Papers not prepared for blind review will be rejected. We respectfully request that we receive submissions only from those who plan to attend the conference if accepted.

e-mail submissions to ugbioethicswmu@gmail.com
