The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for students to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a broad audience. It includes projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a range of topics.
How to Participate
All UVA undergraduates involved in research and creative inquiry are invited to register to present at this year's symposium. Please visit the Information for Students page to learn more about the abstract submission process and presentation formats.
Students, faculty, staff, and guests are invited to attend the Symposium to learn about the research and creative projects being done by current undergraduates. The general Symposium schedule is below - a detailed schedule will be posted here toward the end of March so you can join us on April 27th in Newcomb Hall as your schedule allows!
NB: We ask that attendees visiting concurrent Oral Presentations plan to attend for the duration of the session to minimize disruption to our student presenters.
What to Expect
Students present their work as posters, oral presentations, or performance, visual arts & design presentations. Presenters can check-in at the tables in front of the Newcomb Hall Ballroom prior to their session, where volunteers will be available to direct guests and answer questions about the event throughout the day. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
