The first authors of every submitted paper must be undergraduates at a CSU campus at the time of submission. Any other authors must be CSU faculty research advisors. For an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, one of the authors must commit to presenting their work at the conference. Submitted papers should not have been published in other conferences/journals. It is recommended that student authors work with faculty mentors.
