Beyond our campus undergraduate research symposium EURECA, students have been lead and co-authors, as well as lead and co-presenters, on the dissemination of research at local-to-international conferences. The presentations vary in format but are typically included in a session with other talks or posters. We encourage you to review this list that captures the spectrum of research topics and venues of dissemination.
