Faculty, undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, family, friends, and the NIU and DeKalb communities are all welcome to attend CURE. To participate in the virtual aspect of the conference either as an attendee or presenter, you will need to register.
To present at CURE, you must submit an abstract along with your poster and Flashtalk video by the registration deadline of April 11, 2022. The following information outlines the process for submitting a registration for CURE 2022. If you would like additional guidance on this years' event and registration process, we encourage you to attend one of our CURE Workshops.
If your area is not named below, or if more than one area applies, select the one most closely related to your work.
Given that the CURE abstract guidelines ask for information that is not completely consistent with artistic practices, this is how the requirements should be translated.
