ATLANTA — Georgia State University undergraduates and their faculty advisors should start thinking about research and artistic projects they would like to enter into this spring’s Georgia State University Undergraduate Research Conference.
Proposals for the conference, to be held March 16, 2011 at the Student Center, are due on Jan. 28, said Deborah Garfin, faculty associate for undergraduate research. Work can include poster presentations, oral presentations or artistic displays. Proposals should be submitted online at http://www.gsu.edu/gsurc/22214.html.
“Students from all departments across the university are encouraged to submit proposals,” Garfin said. “GSURC provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in a research conference and discuss their projects with other students and faculty.”
Every presentation must have a GSU undergraduate student as the primary author or artist, and a Georgia State faculty sponsor. Work presented at a previous GSURC cannot be submitted for the 2011 conference.
Last year’s winners included:
• Provost’s Award and 1st place poster award: Julia Eidelman, biology
• 1st place oral award: Imani Mandela, African-American studies
• 1st place art and design: Emily Pidgeon, art and design (photography)
• 2nd place poster: Taiwannika Walker, sociology
• 2nd place oral: Keisha Parker, applied linguistics and ESL.
