2017 Symposium

Dear Members of the UCI Community:

You are cordially invited to join us at the Twenty-Fourth Annual UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017, in the UCI Student Center. This year’s theme, “Undergraduate Research: Excellence through Integrity,” symbolizes the collective approach to faculty-mentored undergraduate research at UCI. We are pleased to announce that this year’s Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Bruce J. Tromberg, Professor of Surgery and Biomedical Engineering, and Director of the Beckman Laser Institute. We are also honored that Provost Enrique J. Lavernia will be present to offer an official welcome to participants and guests.

This stimulating day-long event promises to be exciting and educational. Oral panel sessions and poster presentations will allow undergraduates from all disciplines to present their research, address questions, and engage in discussions with other students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. At lunch, we present an exciting collection of dance performances. A highlight of the day will be the presentation of the Chancellor's Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Research to outstanding faculty and students.

Your participation is a significant element in the success of this Symposium. It will directly support a community committed to the discovery and communication of knowledge. We hope you will be able to join us for all or part of the day's schedule:
