Undergraduate Research Conference
41st Annual Undergraduate Research Conference
Friday, April 24th, 2015Undergraduate Research Conference The College takes seriously the role of research in the liberal arts education of undergraduates. Students regularly benefit from direct contact with our research faculty and are empowered and encouraged to conduct their own inquiries. All undergraduates at the University are invited to participate in and present their research at the College’s 41st annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Friday, April 24th, 2015. Projects showcasing undergraduate work in the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities are welcome. The work may have been done in connection with a course or as independent or supervised study.
Applications to participate in the Conference are available online. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 5:00PM.
In order to help participants prepare for the Conference, we will be hosting a series of presentation workshops, 2 for students doing panel presentations and 2 for students doing poster presentations.
These interactive workshops will focus on both the theoretical and practical aspects of communicating research. Faculty from NYU's Writing in the Disciplines program will facilitate these sessions and fellow undergraduates with experience presenting at conferences will also be on hand to answer questions and provide insights from their own experience. Students attending the sessions are strongly encouraged to bring current drafts of their presentation to receive critique and guidance from fellow students and workshop facilitators.
All workshops will be held in Silver 907 from 5:30-7PM:
- Workshops for Panel Presentations:
- Wednesday, April 8th
- Thursday, April 16th
- Workshops for Poster Presentations
- Thursday, April 9th

All Undergraduate Research Conference presenters are strongly encouraged to attend a workshop entitled "Designing and Delivering Dynamic Presentations."
