Fall Research Symposium

The Fall Research Symposium provides students from all disciplines an opportunity to present their research or creative project, including those undertaken in the previous summer or academic year. 

The 2020 Symposium will be held virtually and includes both oral presentations and posters.

  • Each panel session has its own Google Meet link with 3-4 presenters; after all the presenters have shared their work, there will be 10-15 minutes for Q&A between the audience and the presenters.
  • In a poster session, each presenter has their own Google Meet link. Symposium attendees may join and leave the poster presentations anytime during the hour. Attendees will be able to view the poster slide(s) and speak or chat with the presenter.
