Southern California Council on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) conference

The Southern California Council on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) conference is a celebration of undergraduate research efforts, scholarly activities and creative work. Student participants from colleges and universities in Southern California present their recent and ongoing projects in the  fine arts and performing arts, business, humanities, social sciences, sciences, engineering, and mathematics. Oxy students are traditionally the largest contingent of presenters at SCCUR.  All students involved in research or creative work in any discipline are encouraged to submit an abstract and present their work at this conference, either as a poster or as an oral presentation.

This year, SCCUR will be held at Pepperdine University on Saturday, November 20, 2010.  The Undergraduate Research Center will pay the registration fees for student presenters who register by November 1. THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS IS OCT. 4, 2010.   We can pay only for those who actually attend the conference and present.

Students should discuss their presentation with their research mentor, and then go to the website at:  http://www.pepperdine.edu/sccur2010 to submit an abstract.  Please be sure to read the abstract instructions carefully before submitting your abstract.  After you are notified that your abstract is accepted, you will need to register for the conference.  Watch for an email from the URC explaining how to register so that the URC will pay your fee.

We are very proud of our undergraduate research program and hope you will join in showcasing it at this conference.
