NY Six to hold 4th Annual Undergraduate Research Conference

St. Lawrence University students are invited to participate in the fourth annual New York Six Undergraduate Research Conference, which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 20, at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.

The conference is sponsored by the New York Six, a consortium of upstate New York liberal arts institutions that comprises Colgate University, Hamilton College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, St. Lawrence University, Skidmore College, and Union College.
 
The conference aims to provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to present their work at a professional meeting without the barriers of high travel and registration fees. It's also an excellent opportunity for faculty of the six institutions to meet, foster collaborations, and share the work of their research labs.
 
Students will have the opportunity to present their research as an oral presentation (12 minutes) or as a poster presentation (posters should be 4' wide x 3' high). Oral presentations will take place as concurrent sessions that are organized by discipline. Poster presentations will take place over a two-hour period with the opportunity for students to present during one hour and to interact with other presenters in the other hour.
 
Student presenters should submit abstracts by filling out the following form.
 
The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday, Aug. 29. Students and faculty will be notified of their acceptance by September 5, 2014. If you have any questions, you may contact conference coordinator Christine de Denus, Hobart and William Smith Colleges associate provost, at deDenus@hws.edu.
