2012 Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Biological Sciences and Psychology

Nov. 9-10 at the University of Chicago

Registration Deadline is October 7, 2012

The URS in the Biological Sciences and Psychology will be held November 9-10, 2012 at the University of Chicago.  Costs for participants including transportation, lodging and meals will be covered by the Consortium.  Lodging will be at the Holiday Inn Downtown Chicago.

The purpose of the Symposium is to provide undergraduates from the biological sciences and the psychology fields with a venue to present their research projects and results in either poster or oral formats to their peers and some faculty. 

It is important that EVERYONE presenting register.  Listing the people you are presenting with DOES NOT automatically register them.

Oral presentations are scheduled at 15-minute intervals, allowing 12 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for questions.  Poster presentations allow participants to display their experimental results on a tack board panel measuring approximately 40" square. 

The 2012 Janet Andersen Award Lecture will be presented by Dr. Eric Cole from the Department of Biology at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. For more information see: http://mathsciconsortium.org/janet-andersen-award

Registration will be open until October 7th.
