THE SPEAKERS

For the student conference, each student will be given 10 to 15 minutes for their presentation, and there will be no more than three presenters in each room. Also, questions and answers will be taken following the presentation.

For the professors conference, each professor will be given 20 to 25 minutes for their presentation, and no more than two professors will present in each room. Questions and answers for the professor section will be taken at the professor's discretion. Students are invited and encouraged to attend the professors conference.

For the reception, we will have a valuable guest speaker that will speak after food has been served. Students and professors are welcomed and encouraged to attend the reception.

WHO IS IT FOR

The conference is aimed at furthering meaningful research for undergraduate students. Also, we hope that students are able to take their projects and turn them into graduate research projects. Additionally, we hope that students attend the professor portion of the conference, so they can see how a professional conference is conducted.

Likewise, we hope that professors that are engaging in meaningful research in their field can have a chance for a peer review conference, in order to interact with other professors about their topic/project.
