the 2020 sparc festival has been canceled due to the unanticipated and heavy burden that the covid-19 response has had on the mount community, as well as the uncertain and difficult situations that many members of our community are facing. this cancellation includes all proposed panel presentations, lightning talks, fire talks and poster presentations. honors presentations will be given; watch for more details soon.
we recognize the disappointment of students and mentors who have dedicated many hours to performing research and preparing proposals. the names of presenters and their mentors, titles of presentations and presentation abstracts for all accepted submissions are available below. thank you for your efforts.
