The Undergraduate Research Conference celebrates the contributions of undergraduate research at Nipissing University and across Ontario. It provides an opportunity for students to present a research project they are working on while engaging in scholarly debate amongst each other.
A student from any undergraduate discipline, who has worked on a scholarly project in which s/he has taken a leadership role in its development and execution, are eligible to participate in the conference. Proposals can be disciplinary specific or multi/interdisciplinary.
Students are invited to present an original poster, oral presentation of a paper or a panel presentation of a series of related papers.
This conference is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their work in a professional setting before their peers, faculty, and the public.
Each application will be reviewed by expert faculty reviewers.

A panel presentation involves a showcase of related research of several individuals. The relationship of the research topic(s) can be disciplinary specific or inter or multi-disciplinary. Papers can be presented individully or in a group. It is recommended that groups be mentored by a faculty member in preparation for a panel presentation.
