Representatives from many organizations involved in providing, promoting, and supporting opportunities of undergraduate research will be present from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Galleria to answer questions and provide advice.

Participating organizations include:

Students: Please consider presenting your research as a poster at the Fall Undergraduate Research Fair.  One important purpose of the research fair is to provide an opportunity for students to get advice from fellow science students about getting involved in research.  Presenting research is a great way to demonstrate to fellow students the range of possibilities available, as well as getting experience of giving a poster presentation. 

Research presented in posters could have taken place at Notre Dame or another institution, and over the summer or during the semester.  The research does not necessarily have to be scientific in nature; science students that have undertaken research in other areas of scholarly endeavor are also encouraged to present a poster.  Also, such a presentation could reuse an existing poster that has been generated for another event or scientific meeting.  Furthermore, all science majors are encouraged to present their research.

If you are interested in presenting your research as a poster, please email Dominic Chaloner, Ph.D., Undergraduate Research Coordinator, no later than Thursday, October 9, 2014, including the following information in your email: an existing or potential title of your poster presentation; institution where the research took place; when the research took place; the name and email address of your research mentor, and your science major.  Subsequently, students will need to provide a brief 200 word abstract about the research being presented for inclusion in a handout that will provided at the event.  If students have not already generated a poster about their research, the College of Science will pay for the poster to be printed and details on how to do this will be provided closer to the event.
