Invitation to Present at the Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS)

The Online Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS) is inviting undergraduates of all majors to present their work virtually! The OURS is replacing UC San Diego’s signature Undergraduate Research Conference and will be open to a more inclusive group of students with research experience. The OURS will go live on Thursday May 28, with two livestreamed events: an undergraduate round table discussion via Zoom, and the presentation of the annual Outstanding Mentor Award. Here are some details about the event:

  • Faculty nominations are not required; students may register and submit their presentations directly via the registration forms linked on the OURS website. They must, however, have at least one quarter of experience conducting research either through a recognized UC San Diego program (e.g. TRELS, Academic Internship Program, Independent Study 199, etc.) or with a faculty mentor.
  • Recently graduated students may submit presentations for consideration as long as they graduated no earlier than Fall 2019. Additionally, the findings students present must be from research they conducted as undergraduates between June 2019 and this Spring Quarter.
  • Presentations will be in the format of a 3-5 minute video “elevator pitch,” with the option to also submit a PDF poster or paper.
  • All video presentations will be posted publicly on a virtual forum for 1 month, after which they will become private and accessible only with a UC San Diego email address. We ask all students to confirm with their mentors that none of their presentations contain proprietary information.
  • The deadline to submit a presentation video is May 16.

For more details on how to apply, please visit our website. We look forward to your submissions!

14th Annual Research Symposium

Presenters Needed for the Sustainability Research Symposium

The ISC Sustainability Research Symposium is the first ever cross-disciplinary research symposium at UC San Diego to focus exclusively on issues related to sustainability.  From poster presentations to Green Labs outreach, the symposium will be packed full of opportunities for students and researchers to learn about sustainable research practices and current research efforts seeking to address issues like climate change, pollution, environmental degradation and more. For undergraduates and graduate students conducting research in those areas, we are currently seeking student presenters for a judged poster presentation contest that will take place on May 18th from 5-7 pm.

Abstract submission will be open until April 30th at 11:59 pm, and prizes will be awarded for outstanding poster presentations at the event.

October 23rd: Professional Development Short Courses

This half-day series of talks is intended for both undergraduate and graduate students. Speakers will present on a variety of topics including research engagement, non-traditional career pathways, mental health, and science & education outreach. An evening networking dinner will be held following the talks to which all symposium registrants are invited. 

October 24th: Polymer Design Interfaces

The symposium features invited talks by faculty and students. The poster session is open to all students as well as post-doctoral researchers, and covers research in all areas of polymer science and engineering. Industry sponsors will have booth space during the poster sessions to connect with students.

There is no registration fee. Two poster submissions will be elevated to invited talks, providing a fantastic opportunity to showcase research to leaders in the field. Please let us know if you have any questions about the event. We look forward to seeing you in October!

UC Chemical Symposium (March 26-28) – Abstracts due 12/15

The 3rd-annual UC-wide Chemistry Symposium (March 26-28, 2018) for grad students and postdocs is open for abstract submissions!  Abstracts are due December 15, 2017.

For $259 (which includes lodging and dining), your students and postdocs can meet other graduate students in the chemical sciences from across the UC-system, share their results, and participate in career development activities.  The conference is during UC’s spring break, so there is no conflict with teaching, TA responsibilities, or the spring ACS.  I truly hope you will encourage your group members to participate in this student-organized and run GRS-style conference.4. 2018 UCCS Flyer
