The Council on Undergraduate Research is excited to announce that the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held virtually—from wherever is comfortable with a Wifi connection—in 2022. Due to the increase levels and community spread of the Delta variant and campus travel restrictions, NCUR will remain virtual. This year, however, will be planned out a little differently. Please note the following:

  • NCUR will be providing programming spread out over a week’s time that includes primary education taking place in learning discipline-specific cohorts
  • All accepted students, including those poster and visual art image submissions, will have the opportunity to present to a cohort group for 10-15 minutes.
  • This year, NCUR will take place on a new platform integrated with ZOOM.
  • A new additional this year is adding an opt-in competitive element for presentations.
  • Registration options for family and friend’s passes will be available.
  • Graduate Fair meet-up hours will be separate from presentation times to prevent conflicts. There will also be interactive game activities with prizes.

So, what does this mean for you?

You can expect to apply for and attend NCUR just as you would any other year but from the comfort of your home. No traveling or hotels required. You will have the option to present a digital poster, give an oral presentation, showcase an art display or performing arts presentation, and more.
