Students are required to register and submit their abstract between March 12th - March 19th through the student portal.
Students may present as an individual or in a pair of two.
Students will be able to submit their presentations/posters between March 28th - April 10th. Once submitted, students will not be able to amend their presentation slides. If students have any questions, please direct them to their UROP Peer Facilitator or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshops will be available in March to assist students in fine tuning the look and content of their poster/presentation.
Students will be assigned to a two hour block of time during the symposium day. One hour will be their time to present, the other hour will be their designated time to attend the symposium as an observer. Students will be grouped by lab and mentor in a single hour as much as possible to best support their peers and their mentors schedule.
UROP is committed to providing accommodations and making our events accessible. Students and Mentors will be able to indicate in the registration portal whether you or any of your guests need such accommodations in order to assign student presentation locations that best meet the accessibility needs of our attendees.
Mentors are required to approve their students’ abstract and give them permission to present by March 26th.
*If you do not wish for your students to present at the Symposium, you will need to indicate that in the symposium registration form and provide students with an alternative assignment. The alternative assignment should be completed by April 19th (day of Symposium) and should give students the ability to showcase their research progress throughout the academic year.
Presentation Judges: As always, we will be awarding students Blue Ribbon Awards for outstanding presentations. Please fill out the Judges Interest Form if you are interested in serving as a judge. Please share with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who might want to be involved as well.
