Presentation Opportunities

Presenting your research provides you with an important opportunity to share your findings and results with other students and faculty and gain valuable feedback on your work. Larger conferences and presentation opportunities will also give you a chance to practice your public speaking skills and professionalism. These venues are a great place to network with peers and other professionals in your field. Listed below are select local and national presentation opportunities for undergraduate researchers.

Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium

By participating in the Annual Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium, Georgia Tech's largest undergraduate research colloquium, you will share your research work with other students and faculty from all over campus, learn about research in an informal atmosphere, gain valuable skills and experience in presenting your work, and make an impact on other undergraduates who may be wondering what research is all about.

Undergraduate Research Kaleidoscope

Hosted by The Tower Undergraduate Research Journal in conjunction with UROP and the Georgia Tech Library, the Undergraduate Research Kaleidoscope (URK) is a research presentation event where you present in the exciting pecha kucha style. The URK is a casual environment to discuss student research going on around campus, and all research topics are welcome.

Off-Campus Opportunities

  • ACC Meeting of the Minds Undergraduate Research Conference: Each year, usually in late March or early April, 5-10 outstanding undergraduate researchers (accompanied by a faculty or staff member) from each ACC university gather at a host university to present their research, either verbally or as a poster.
  • Sigma Xi Student Research Conference: Outstanding high school, undergraduate, and graduate students are invited to join research scientists from North America and abroad for a celebration of research accomplishments hosted by Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, the global honor society for science and engineering research.
  • Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students: ABRCMS is one of the largest professional conferences for underrepresented minority students, military veterans, and persons with disabilities to pursue advanced training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. During the four-day conference, over 1,700 students participate in poster and oral presentations in twelve disciplines in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.
  • National Conferences on Undergraduate Research: The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research, 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.
  • Council on Undergraduate Research – Posters on the Hill: Each spring, the Council on Undergraduate Research hosts an annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event helps members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact. Applications open annually the first week of September and are generally due between mid-October and mid-November. 
  • American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Southeastern Section Annual Conference: ASEE seeks to promote excellence in engineering education across the full spectrum of engineering fields. Authors are invited to submit full-length manuscripts for presentation at the conference and inclusion in its proceedings.
  • Annual SACNAS National Conference: The SACNAS National Conference motivates, inspires and engages participants to achieve their highest goals in pursuing education and careers in STEM fields. Conference programming is specifically tailored to support undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and career professionals at each transition stage of their career as they move towards positions of science leadership.
