5th Annual NORTHEAST UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT SYMPOSIUM (NURDS 2013) at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine, USA on March 2-3, 2013
Created, organized and run by undergraduate and graduate students, the NURDS symposium will provide a comfortable environment for undergraduate humanities, social science and science students to present their research and scholarly projects from any academic program to an audience of peers.
The presented work may come from an independent project, honors thesis, or senior thesis. Students are encouraged to present reports from any stage of their projects, whether as an oral presentation (end of study), poster (mid-study), or data blitz (beginning of study). Participants can expect to get feedback from an audience of peers that helps their studies to become more focused and stronger. All will get many chances to contribute to research discussions among students from multiple universities across the northeastern US and Canada. Workshops on a variety of topics will supplement the research presentations.
At last year’s NURDS symposium more than 200 students from 40 different universities attended. Students came from as far south as Connecticut, as far west as New York, and as far north as Nova Scotia. Undergraduates studying in all areas---including the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences---are encouraged to attend.
We accept presentations that fulfill the definition of undergraduate research as stated by the Council of Undergraduate Research (CUR): "An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline."
Limited free housing for presenters is available!
Register to present a paper, poster or data blitz. See www.une.edu/nurds for further information.
