The Undergraduate Research Symposium is open to all undergraduate researchers!
The Undergraduate Research Symposium is a chance for students to present their research. All areas of research are accepted, and this is 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.
ABSTRACT + POSTER PRESENTATION SUBMISSION EXTENDED DEADLINE: October 30, 2020, 11:59pm.
The Center for Undergraduate Research Board of Students (CURBS) is pleased to announce the call for abstracts and presentations for the 2020 Fall Undergraduate Research Symposium. The deadline to submit your abstract, poster, and presentation is October 16th. Use the Register link below to submit. Abstract must be max 200 words.
All undergraduate students in all research disciplines are eligible and encouraged to participate.
This year we are proud to host our Fall Symposium on a new platform. Your abstract submission will be collected online via a registration form through the link below. The only restrictions on the submissions is that any files need to be in PDF format and under 10MB (these instructions are explicit on the form and listed below). For presenters who would like to upload a supplementary video (with the poster presentation) or an oral presentation, these need to be shared via a YouTube link (also indicated on the form and listed below). It is recommended that the YouTube videos be set as unlisted following upload so that they don’t appear in any public search (i.e. they are only accessible through the unique link). The instructions for how to do that are also on the form.
Please note that when copying in an abstract, certain formatting (e.g. bold, italics, etc.) may not be kept. Please double check your abstract and re-add formatting where necessary.
Upload a PDF of your poster. PDF must be less than 10MB in size. If necessary, to compress it and reduce the file size, we suggest Smallpdf.com or another online tool.*
Please upload a video (2-5 mins recommended) of you describing your work/poster to YouTube and paste the link below (only YouTube links will be supported). Please make the YouTube video settings as UNLISTED.
