Submit Your Abstract for the Undergraduate Research Symposium!

The UO Undergraduate Research Symposium is currently accepting submissions for their 10th annual event. The symposium features research and artistic projects across all majors— undergraduate students from the University of Oregon and Lane Community College are encouraged to apply. 

The Undergraduate Research Symposium aims to highlight the research and creative contributions of undergraduates across a diverse range of disciplines, breaking down barriers of interdisciplinary study and discourse. If you have a project that you’d like to showcase during the symposium, please consider submitting your abstract per the guidelines below. 

Submission Details: 

Submissions are handled through the Undergraduate Research Symposium’s official website. Students will be asked to provide general information on their project, as well as a short abstract. Abstracts should include: 

  • A hypothesis, thesis, purpose, or question of study 

  • Research methods, procedures, sources, or media 

  • Primary results, findings, or arguments of the project 

  • Primary conclusions or implications of the project 

  • Statement of the project’s significance 

Abstracts should be written in accessible language and should not exceed the recommended word count. The Review Committee will accept or decline abstracts with specific feedback according to the symposium’s requirements. For assistance with writing an abstract, students can attend ASURE’s peer-led workshop or review their PowerPoint resource on writing and editing an abstract. 

The final deadline for submissions is 11:59PM on Monday, April 6, 2020
