About the Symposium

In support of SFU's commitment to student engagement and undergraduate student research experiences, SFU is hosting its third annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. The day’s events will be held from 9:00am to 4:00pm at the Diamond Alumni Centre (DAC) on the SFU Burnaby campus.

The Symposium provides an opportunity for eligible undergraduate students from all disciplines to present their research in a friendly and supportive environment. The Symposium showcases the high quality of undergraduate research taking place across our University for a diverse and interdisciplinary audience.  

Presenters will be grouped into sessions to give five-minute lectures about their research. Each session will end with a 15-minute moderated conversation about common themes and interdisciplinary connections across the presentations. 

The Symposium is an interdisciplinary forum.  Students engaged in supervised research from all academic disciplines and units are welcome.

Proposals for the 2020 UGRS will be accepted from February 3 through February 24, 2020.
