  • Logging into Pirateport automatically generates your Name, Program, College and Major for your online abstract submission.
  • You MUST select a Mentor for your abstract.  When searching for your mentor please negate any spaces before or after your mentor’s first or last name as this will cause to
    return faulty searches.  You may add co-mentors if you choose to, but an on-site mentor must be selected to submit an abstract.
  • The submission area is Microsoft Word copy and paste compatible.  Greek characters ARE supported in the abstract.  There is a Greek directory above the both the title and
    the abstract fields.
