Undergraduate Research Symposium

14th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

Saturday April 17, 2021


Dear Colleagues:

I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with details in regards to this year Undergraduate Research Symposium. Please note the following:

  • The 14th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will take place virtually.
  • The deadline for Abstract Submission  is Monday March 29, 2021.
  • The Registration deadline is Monday March 29, 2021
  • The abstract should be submitted to :  biochemurs@wpunj.edu

Information for virtual poster presentations:

Students will be presenting their posters live during the poster sessions.  

Each category will have its own breakout room in either the morning or afternoon session. Presenters will be notified of their category and session by early the week of April 12th. Each presenter will also be assigned a specific time for their presentation that will include time for questions from the judges and the general audience. Specifics regarding the exact timeslots will also be provided by early the week of April 12th. This means that during the poster sessions, there will be concurrent sessions, so there will be a moderator for each room to keep time. Individuals will be able to move freely throughout the breakout rooms during the poster sessions, so non-presenters will be able to view presentations in multiple rooms. We will ask that presenters stay in their breakout room during the presentations so that all presenters have an audience.  

Take care of yourself, your family, and each other during this time.  We wish everyone the best.
