We ask that all presenters arrive during Registration/Breakfast. Poster presenters will be taken to the easel or table assigned for their display by a student volunteer. Oral presenters should familiarize themselves with the room and any equipment that will be used in their presentation; we also recommend uploading any needed files to the room's computer before the Oral Presentation Session begins. At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, Symposium participants are invited to pick up their box lunches and then enjoy an excellent dance performance. The day's celebration continues with the poster session and concludes with a second session of oral presentations. Use this schedule to help plan your day:

Symposium Etiquette

The UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium is created as a forum not only to present your achievements as an undergraduate researcher but also as a celebration of bringing together a community committed to excellence and knowledge expansion. Be a part of this community and support your peers, who have also experienced the trials and successes of the research process, by attending their presentations and learning about the research that they have completed. When you are participating as a presenter or as an audience member for the oral presentations, please demonstrate respect and courtesy for your fellow researchers throughout the entire session. If you must leave at anytime during the sessions, please inform the student room monitors that you will need to leave early, and they will assist you in leaving the session at the end of a presentation and before the next presentation begins.
