Undergraduate Research Symposium

2022 Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium

April 7, 2022

1pm – 5pm

Stephen C. O’Connell Center


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.

Guests with all levels of experience are welcome to explore the symposium, too!


All undergraduate students in all research disciplines are eligible and encouraged to participate.

  • Registrations for the 2022 Spring Symposium will open February 1st and close on March 17, 2022
  • Abstracts should be 250 word max  

For any additional questions, please contact the CUR office at cur@aa.ufl.edu.

Archive Your Poster/Presentation for Posterity (and Showing Off)

The Institutional Repository at UF (IR@UF) offers free online publishing and archiving services to the UF community, and they want your work. After you finish your poster, remember to save it as a PDF file from whatever program you used to create it. All you need to do to submit your poster to the Institutional Repository at UF (IR@UF) is use this link to create an email message to the IR.

To give the Smathers Libraries permission to put your work online, just copy and paste the following into the message:

  1. I verify that I am the copyright holder or that I have retained the right to share my work openly in an institutional repository.
  2. I am granting the Smathers Libraries permission to host and display my work in the IR@UF. This grant does not alter my rights in any way.
  3. UF will not profit from putting my work online.
  4. I am free to distribute my work as copyright holder, or in ways that are consistent with any prior agreements that I have entered with respect to my rights in this work.
  5. The IR@UF will include a statement with my online thesis that informs users that I own copyright and that they must contact you for any use that is in excess of fair use or other exceptions available under the law.
  6. The IR@UF will archive my work for preservation purposes and will assign a permanent URL that will link to my item indefinitely.


Then attach your PDF to it, and send it! When your poster is available online, the Smathers Libraries will send you the permanent link that you can use for applications, CVs, and impressing friends and family.

Note: If you gave a live presentation and have a video recording that you would like to add to the IR@UF, please email IRManager@uflib.ufl.edu and we will help you get the file online.
