logo for ideaFest
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the 7th Annual ideaFest Symposium will now be hosted online in a variety of digital platforms. Students, staff, and faculty can still participate in the spirit of ideaFest by disseminating & sharing their research & creative activities in the following ways:

We are extending the online registration for ideaFest 2.0 to May 1, 2020. Participants can continue to submit their project abstracts online at https://ideafest.humboldt.edu/. Presenters will have their abstracts published here.

Registered participants will be encouraged to publish their projects/posters online at Humboldt Digital Commons. Then, during the week of May 4-8th, Humboldt State University will be highlighting examples of the research & creative works submitted to Humboldt Digital Commons.

Anyone from the HSU community can also submit their academic essays or research articles for the next issue of ideaFest Journal, HSU’s own peer-reviewed academic journal. The deadline to submit your publication proposals is December 23, 2020. For more information about ideaFest Journal contact Kyle Morgan at kyle.morgan@humboldt.edu.
This year’s ideaFest 2.0 is sponsored by the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, Marketing & Communications, and the HSU Library in collaboration with the Colleges. We are all excited for the opportunity to support the development and dissemination of research & creative activities at Humboldt State University.
Next year, we look forward to hosting the 8th Annual ideaFest in-person to once again connect our campus community to the scholarly research, creative arts, and performances here at Humboldt State University.
For information about project submissions, contact Sally Hang at sally.hang@humboldt.edu.
