Symposium Preparation

Were you funded by UROP this year? If so, you are required to present at the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium. This workshop will guide you through the process of applying to present at the Symposium, developing and submitting your abstract, and preparing your presentation according to Symposium guidelines.

Practice Your Presentation

Practice! Practice! Practice! Get valuable advice from peers and UROP Advisors on how to perfect your presentation. Attend a practice session and get familiar with the equipment and software available for you to use on the day of the Symposium. The more you practice, the more comfortable you will be in making an outstanding presentation at the Symposium.

Presentation Skills Workshop

Learn to clearly and effectively present the results of your research project in a professional setting. This workshop will cover techniques of making an oral or poster presentation and discuss in detail the schedule of the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium. Reminder: developing your communication skills should be a priority regardless of what you want to do in the future.




Sponsored by UROP, the Symposium is an annual event that allows undergraduates the opportunity to present their research results in a professional setting. The day’s activities include oral and poster presentations, student performances, a keynote speaker, roundtable discussions, and an awards ceremony. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in this celebrated UCI event. The Call for Abstracts is issued during the Winter Quarter. This year’s Symposium will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2006.
