The Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) hosts an annual conference where undergraduate students are invited to present their research findings. This year’s conference will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at the CSU San Marcos.
SCCUR provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of the best research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduates in the region, and thus to encourage excellence in undergraduate achievement.
SCCUR is broadly multi-disciplinary, including the sciences, humanities, social sciences, arts, and performing arts. SCCUR typically draws 500-800 participants, mainly undergraduates and their faculty mentors, administrators, and community college and high school students.
Students present their work either in 15-minute formal panel presentations chaired by faculty members, in poster form, or in exhibition or performance. The conference seeks to replicate professional and scholarly meetings, and many undergraduate scholars participate in SCCUR as a “first conference” experience, going on to present their work at national professional meetings.
In recent years SCCUR’s conference has drawn from seven to nine hundred undergraduate student participants presenting their work in the form of oral presentations, posters, and creative exhibits and performances, as well as their faculty mentors and guests. Participants come from approximately 80 institutions in Southern California and the rest of the nation, with some international presenters.
Students apply to present their work at SCCUR by submitting a proposal in the form of a brief abstract to the conference organizers. Abstracts are reviewed by faculty from appropriate disciplines at participating institutions and accepted, rejected, or returned for revision and resubmission. Abstracts are due: October 26, 2019
