Call for Papers: International Conference ofUndergraduate Research

Dear UW Students,

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the third annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR).

ICUR is a unique, two-day event which connects students from eight universities worldwide via video-conference. University of Washington students will have the opportunity to share their research and scholarly work with peers from Kyushu University in Japan, Monash University in Australia, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and the University of Western Australia.

The conference is an exclusively undergraduate forum designed to showcase the best in undergraduate research from across the globe, and to provide a supportive yet critical environment for talented young scholars. ICUR is intended to help students:

1) internationalize their university experience by presenting on the world stage
2) understand how to articulate the importance of their research across disciplinary boundaries
3) develop an appreciation of how local specificities or global imperatives shape their research area.

We anticipate diverse contributions to make ICUR 2015 a conference to shift your thinking, expand your network and transform your approach to research.

Abstracts from all disciplines are sought. The theme of the conference is “Current research issues in your discipline or area”. Students are invited to submit abstracts of 250 words via the online application.

WHAT: International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR)
WHEN: Monday-Tuesday, Sept. 28-29, 2015, 3:00-9:30 PM PDT daily
WHERE: Video-conference studio in UW Odegaard Undergraduate Library
APPLY: http://www.icurportal.com/submit-an-abstract/
DEADLINE: Friday, May 22, 2015

All current UW undergraduate students are eligible to apply. UW alumni may apply to participate up to one year after graduation, as long as the work presented was part of the student’s academic or extra-curricular activities while actively pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.

All presentations will be oral talks. Orientations will be held in September to acquaint all presenters with the videoconference format and technology, and allow presenters to interact with their international colleagues prior to the conference.

Send questions or comments to mgates.

Sincerely,
April Wilkinson
Assistant Director, Mary Gates Endowment for Students
