Fall 2017 Symposium

Call for Abstracts

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is issuing a call for abstracts for its Fall 2017 Symposium. Three winners will be supported in their paper/performance submission to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and their travel to the conference covered by OUR.

Abstracts may be submitted for traditional research in any field, composition or performance in music or theatre, and visual art.

Students should submit the following to OUR@unco.edu by 5pm Friday, October 6:

·      300 word abstract

·      Letter of support from a faculty mentor

A committee of faculty and staff will select 8 or 9 abstracts for full presentation at the fall symposium, taking place November 15th, 3:00-6:00.  Of those presenting, three will be chosen as winners, and will submit their papers/presentations to NCUR for consideration.  OUR will sponsor their travel to NCUR, whether or not their presentations are accepted by the national organization for presentation at the conference.  Please be aware that winning UNC's Fall Symposium competition does not guarantee presentation at NCUR.  Students must submit their research or creative endeavors to the national committee for consideration.  Please visit the NCUR site for more information on the national conference.
