Present Your Work
The following is a list of opportunities to present results of your research in a live setting, either as a presentation or as a poster.
Florida State University Undergraduate Research Symposium
March 27, 2012, Strozier Library, 10am – 2 pm
The Twelth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is a showcase for undergraduate student researchers to present their work to the university community. The symposium is an interdisciplinary event that welcomes research and creative activities from across campus. Students are invited to present their honors thesis work, the results of their directed individual studies, and any other research or creative endeavor that they have done under the direction of a faculty member. This symposium supports completed projects and research and/or creative works in progress. We encourage students who have not yet completed their research to submit an abstract as this is an excellent opportunity for feedback from faculty and peers. Some tips on writing an abstract can be found here.
Available formats for presentations:
•Oral Presentations should be 12 minutes in length. If you have a PowerPoint presentation, you will be asked to submit your presentation via e-mail to the Office of Undergraduate Research prior to arriving at the symposium. A question and answer session will follow each presentation. You can find examples of oral presentations from the Fall Undergraduate Research Symposiums here: http://learningforlife.fsu.edu/urcaa/
• Poster Presentations must be no larger than 3ft x 4ft, oriented
either horizontally or vertically, on an easel that will be provided
for you. The Office of Undergraduate Research can print your poster
for you. You can find examples of poster presentations from previous Undergraduate Research Symposiums here: http://our.fsu.edu/posters.html
• There will also be limited space for displays of models and original artwork (ceramics, sculptures, and other art that can be placed on tables). Easels will be available for paintings, drawings, and other hanging artwork.
Applications to present at the Undergraduate Research Symposium can be found here: UR Conference 2012 Application
Applications are due January 23, 2012 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
ACC Meeting of the Minds Conference
Each spring, the ACC Meeting of the minds conference provides the opportunity for Florida State students to present their research to students and faculty from around the Atlantic Coast Conference. The conference welcomes research from every discipline; therefore, participating by either presenting or attending is a great opportunity to see the types of research being done in all disciplines from around the ACC schools. If your application to this award is accepted through this office, you will present your reserach at the conference and all expenses associated with attending the conference for students will be covered. Each year FSU sends about six students to represent the university at this conference.
The sixth annual ACC Meeting of the Minds Undergraduate Research Conference will be hosted by Virginia Tech on March 30-April 1, 2012.
The deadline to submit abstracts is January 23rd, 2012. The application is available here.
