Presentation Opportunities

Below you will find more information about presentation opportunities at the UO and beyond.  At the very end we have provided guidance on creating effective posters for presentation.

University of Oregon Undergraduate Research Symposium


Overview: The UO Undergraduate Symposium celebrates the remarkable contributions our undergraduates make to research and other creative work in a wide range of disciplines. The Symposium enables undergraduates to  share their ideas, discoveries, and artistic expression with the campus and local community. The Symposium invites students to select their preferred style of presentation to best accommodate their projects. Held in the EMU in the mode of an academic conference, the Symposium will include poster sessions, oral presentations and exhibition space for performing and fine arts.

Submission Deadline: March 10, 2017

NCUR (National Conference on Undergraduate Research)


Overview: The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.

Location: University of North Carolina at Asheville
