The Undergraduate Research Symposium provided a chance for students to present their research from afar. All areas of research are accepted, and this was a great opportunity for students to present their summer work, such as research done at an REU, abroad, or at the University of Florida. Presenting at the symposium gives students valuable presentation experience, as well as a place to network and learn about research in a variety of fields.

Please feel free to share using the hashtag #2021UFCURSYM.  We want to share your posts with others and are very proud of everything the students have accomplished.

Abstract, Poster, and Video submission are due by March 15th at 11:59pm.

New Commenting Feature!

We have addressed the feedback from last years symposium and will be implementing a new commenting feature created by Graphcomment.  This will allow for live comments to populate without refreshing and quick moderation of comments to allow for a live chat with each student on their own page.

Create a Graphcomment account right from the student’s page.

Why create an account? Profiles are displayed directly on comments, enabling a quick view of the user.  Once signed in, users are alerted in real time via email of a response or a received vote, so no need to stay on the same student page to wait.

If you decide, you can post as a guest, but will lose those features.

You can connect to the comment plugin with any of the accounts listed:

  • Google
  • Facebook
  • Twitter

Or create a GraphComment Account by clicking Register now!

  • Use UFL email
  • Full Name for Username (First and Last, this is what will be visible to others)
  • Password of your choice

You will be asked to verify your email with a code:  Check your email for this code!!

After you verify your email you will receive a welcome email with the features of graph comment and you are ready to go.  Process only takes a couple minutes and will allow you to create a profile with your image and any additional information you wish to provide others during your interaction.
