Undergraduate Research Conferences are typically held in the Spring. This means that abstract submissions and registration deadlines are in the Fall. Conferences are a great way to communicate your research to other researchers, students, legislators, and others. In addition, you’ll strengthen your networking and presentation skills by participating. Students from many different fields are invited to participate in these conferences.
