The annual GSW Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for students and faculty across campus to gather and share the remarkable amount of research work always ongoing here. Having started with the 2017-2018 school year, we are now headed for our third event. 


The 2019-2020 symposium date is yet to be determined, but will likely be mid-April, with abstract submission deadlines in mid-March.


About the Symposium

The Symposium is a one-day event showcasing research and arts projects from GSW undergraduate students.  Projects are presented through academic posters, oral presentations, or other project mediums.  Prizes are typically offered for the top projects in various disciplines.

Poster presentations typically go up early; usually the Wednesday evening before the Friday symposium.  Even if unable to attend the symposium itself, both students and faculty are encouraged to come examine the posters (northwest 2nd floor SSC hall) and submit their vote for the best overall poster.

Keynote Speaker

The 2019-2020 keynote speaker is yet to be decided.  Last year, Dr. Betty Elder--a 40-year veteran of teaching microbiology, department chair, and great supporter of undergraduate research--addressed the symposium.

How and when do I submit?

The submission window for 2019-2020 projects has not yet opened, but watch this space for updates!  Past submissions have been made by advisors through GeorgiaView.
