LSU Undergraduate Research Conference

The 10th annual LSU Undergraduate Research Conference (URC), “Excite/Explore/Experiment” will be held on Friday, October 26, 2018 in the Louisiana State University Student Union. Our goal is to provide a dynamic forum for undergraduates to present their research, interact with faculty, and develop collaboration with their peers. As we celebrate our tenth year milestone, the theme for this year is "Inspiring Curiosity:  Celebrating 10 years of Excite, Explore, Experiment."

This conference has the benefit of a smaller venue than most conferences, providing a coaching environment while preparing participants for presenting in a larger setting. The URC is designed and managed by the LSU Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI) as a regional single-day conference for undergraduate researchers in a broad range of disciplines including STEM, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education.

The students participate in three components of the conference, aptly identified as Excite, Explore, and Experiment. 

The Excite component is the keynote address; the Explore component is an activity which addresses a current topic or provides a networking opportunity; and the Experiment component is student research presentations in a poster or oral competition.

Registration Fee: $30

Abstract Deadline Extended: 10/19/2018
