Purdue Undergraduate Research Conference submissions due Friday
Undergraduate students have until Friday (March 1) to apply to present an oral presentation or poster on their research or creative endeavors at the 2019 Purdue Undergraduate Research Conference, formerly the Undergraduate Research and Poster Symposium.
Oral presentations will occur at 1-4 p.m. April 4 in Stewart Center, Room 214. Undergraduate researchers and scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to participate. Those interested in presenting an oral presentation should submit their three- to five-page paper through the online submission site.
This year, the poster symposium will occur in two sessions at 9-11:30 a.m. and 1-3:30 p.m. April 9 in Purdue Memorial Union's North and South Ballrooms. Those interested in presenting during the poster symposium should submit their abstract through the same online submission site.
Faculty, staff and graduate students who are interested in judging during the poster symposium can register on the conference’s judging information link.
Both events will showcase the research of undergraduate students and are open to the public. Prizes will be awarded from each of the sponsoring academic units. The process of disseminating research results, gaining valuable feedback from judges, and networking with other participants is a vital step in the learning process from engaging in a research experience.
The Purdue Undergraduate Research Conference is organized by the Office of Undergraduate Research. The OUR website also features this semester's seminar series, a listing of available undergraduate research opportunities, resources for getting started in undergraduate research, and a method to subscribe to the undergraduate research newsletter.
