OCMC 2022


September 23-25, 2022

Austin, TX

Submit Your Work!

Students may submit to present in either a poster session or featured speaker session.

Poster Sessions:
An opportunity for master’s and non-dissertating doctoral students to showcase their research and obtain scholarly feedback from faculty and fellow graduate students in an informal setting. To submit for a poster presentation, please prepare an abstract summarizing your work.

Featured Speaker:
An opportunity for advanced/dissertating doctoral students to present their developed research. Featured speakers will have 15 minutes to present followed by 10 minutes of Q&A. This is a great opportunity to practice a dissertation defense and prepare for job talks! To submit for a featured speaker presentation, please prepare an extended abstract summarizing your work.

Both the poster session and featured speaker submissions are due July 1st. Decisions will go out on July 15th.

Travel Arrangements

As you plan your travel, preconference attendees should try to arrive at the Austin airport by the early afternoon of Friday, September 23rd. Preconferences will begin at 2:00pm, followed by an opening reception at 6:00pm that we hope to see everyone at! The main conference starts early Saturday morning on September 24th. We hope attendees will make every effort to book return flights after 2pm Sunday September 25th to have time for graduate student presentations and farewell lunch. Helpful travel tips and hotel block information will be available on the OCMC website in the coming weeks.
