REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS


President Jennifer Raab, the Office of the Provost, the Undergraduate Research Initiative and Hunter’s Science Mathematics Opportunities Network (SciMON) are pleased to announce Hunter’s second annual Undergraduate Research Conference set for March 5-6, 2014. Building on last year’s inaugural event, this year’s conference will provide a forum for Hunter undergraduates from all disciplines and departments to present their research or scholarship via poster sessions and oral presentations. The conference will also include sessions and fairs about pursuing research opportunities at Hunter and beyond. Finally, the conference will sponsor an awards ceremony that will honor the best student posters and presentations as well as faculty excellence in mentoring undergraduates in research and scholarship.

 

**Please note the deadline to submit abstracts has passed.**

 

There are two options for presentations:

10-minute Oral presentation
Poster presentation
We invite submissions for individual undergraduates to give a 10-minute oral presentation on research they have conducted in any academic area. Oral presentation sessions will take place on both conference days, with several students presenting during each session.  Depending on the number of submissions received, it may not be possible to accept all presentations.  We therefore recommend that students consider applying for multiple types of presentations (e.g., a poster and an oral presentation) to ensure their participation in the conference. We invite submissions from undergraduates to present up to two posters on research conducted in any academic area. There will be at least two poster sessions each day of the conference. All Hunter undergraduates who submit a poster that is endorsed by a faculty sponsor will be accepted.

Requirements

  • Before submitting a proposal for the Conference, students must obtain approval from the Hunter faculty member who supervised the research or a Hunter faculty member who is willing to sponsor the submission if the research was conducted outside of Hunter.  Faculty will be required to indicate their support of the submission as part of the application process.
  • Submissions must include an abstract of no more than 250 words. Students are encouraged to work with their faculty sponsors to develop their abstracts and their presentations.

Requirements

  • Students must be an author on the poster. (Posters may have multiple authors.)
  • Before submitting a poster for the conference, students must obtain approval from the Hunter faculty member who supervised the research or a Hunter faculty member who is willing to sponsor the submission if the research was conducted outside of Hunter.  Faculty will be required to indicate their support of the submission as part of the application process.
  • Submissions must include an abstract of no more than 250 words. Students are encouraged to work with their faculty sponsors to develop their abstracts and posters.

How to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentations:

NOTE: The 2014 UGRC is no longer accepting submissions.


All accepted submissions will be published in the Hunter College Undergraduate Research Conference Proceedings.

 

Abstract Preparation

Because abstracts will be published and can be listed on students’ CVs, they should be as professional as possible. We strongly recommend that students work with their faculty sponsors in developing their abstracts, which typically include a research question, methods, results, and the significance of the work.  Students may visit this source for tips on preparing an abstract.
