Conferences and Events
Fall Student Research Sympsium is a chance for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research experiences and findings, featuring poster presentations from across disciplines.
The Discovery Day Student Research Symposium represents the culmination of the hard work, dedication, and significant achievements of our fellow student researchers on the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. With poster and oral presentations across disciplines, the symposium provides a unique look into the breadth and depth of outstanding research and innovation being cultivated by our amazing students.
The Office of Undergraduate Research supports student presentation of their research at a wide array of industry conferences through our Spark Conference Travel Grant. Furthermore, we support student delegations to FURC, NCUR, Posters at the Florida State Capitol, and Posters on the Hill.
Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC)
FURC is one of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conferences. It is an annual event open to all undergraduate researchers in the state of Florida to present their research in a poster forum. FURC 2021 will be hosted virtually by Florida State University on February 26-27, 2021. Abstract submissions are due in December.
National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)
NCUR is the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conference. The conference this year will be held at the University of California State Long Beach, April 2021. Abstract submissions are due in December.
Posters at the Florida State Capitol
Posters at the Capitol is held at the Florida State Capitol Complex in downtown Tallahassee. At this event, up to four undergraduate researchers from each university and college across the state present their research in a poster format; they will also have the opportunity to interact with legislative members from their representative districts. The 2021 Posters at the Capitol is scheduled for March 2021. Abstract submissions are due in November.
Posters on the Hill
Each spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research hosts the annual Posters on the Hill. At this event and its related activities, members of Congress and their staff members learn about the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the student researchers. Applications are due in November.
