The Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium is an annual 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, UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program) research, 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.

Please complete the form below.

*Indicates required field

Presentation Formats
  • 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 if you do not have access to a poster printer through your department. 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.

You do not have to be there for the full four hours; you will sign up for your preferred two-hour slot and we will attempt to accommodate these preferences. Students should stay with their poster for the duration of their allotted session (2 hour slot) and be prepared to discuss their research/creative project. Students presenting a poster and as part of a group with more than two students should plan to have group members present in both two-hour blocks of time (i.e., 10am-12pm and 12pm-2pm). Class excuse letters can be provided.  Please contact Jake Gibbons at jgibbons@fsu.edu with questions and visit http://our.fsu.edu/present.html for more information.
