Undergraduate Research Symposium

2024 Undergraduate Research Symposium
Thursday, April 18, 2024 | Newcomb Hall


The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for students to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a broad audience. It includes projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a range of topics.

How to Participate

All UVA undergraduates involved in research and creative inquiry are invited to register to present at this year's symposium. Please visit the Information for Students page to learn more about the abstract submission process and presentation formats.

Students, faculty, staff, and guests are invited to attend the Symposium to learn about the research and creative projects being done by current undergraduates. The general Symposium schedule is below - a detailed schedule, including abstracts, can be viewed HERE so you can join us on April 18 in Newcomb Hall as your schedule allows! 

NB: We ask that attendees visiting concurrent Oral Presentations plan to attend for the duration of the session to minimize disruption to our student presenters. 

What to Expect

Students present their work as posters, oral presentations, or performance, visual arts & design presentations. Presenters check-in at the tables in front of the Newcomb Hall Ballroom prior to their session, where volunteers will be available to direct guests and answer questions about the event. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day for all attendees. Enjoy photos from the 2023 symposium and this past year’s 2024 symposium (photo credit: Luca Pfeiffer)!
