Abstract submission is now closed!

The Office for Undergraduate Research will host the 3rd Annual Undergraduate Research Conferences at the University of Guyana during the period April 10-12, 2019. The theme for the conferences is Undergraduate Research: Sharing Experiences, Making Impacts. To be considered for the conferences, students must submit their completed forms (also sent by email through the SRMS) by February 8, 2019, by email to cfp@uog.edu.gy.

Undergraduate research is relevant to all disciplines and in recognition of this fact, the URC 2019 invites submissions from all disciplines, including the visual and performing arts.

It is important to note that your mentors or supervisors must approve of your submissions. Students are therefore expected to contact their mentors to have them complete the submission forms. The form includes a space for inserting the abstract. All submission forms must be returned in MS Word format (not pdf) to facilitate processing.

The conferences include three events:

Faculty Discussions on Undergraduate Research – April 10, 2019

This event will feature presentations and discussion by faculty members about undergraduate research in general and the undergraduate research experience at the University of Guyana. Faculty members are therefore invited to submit abstracts for presentations on relevant topics. These can include presentations of research done with undergraduates or which focus on improving the experience of undergraduates at the university. These discussions may focus on pedagogy, research supervision, facilities and programmes to enhance the experience and quality of undergraduates among other relevant issues. Participation in these discussions is not restricted to academics.

Undergraduate Research Presentations at Turkeyen – April 11, 2019

This event will feature poster and oral presentations by undergraduates and it will be hosted at the Turkeyen campus. As noted previously, this event is open to all disciplines. Students may submit either completed research or proposals (or work in progress). It is expected that primarily recent graduates (2018) will present completed research whereas current final year students will likely present their research proposals or work completed so far. It must be clear in the submission form whether the work is completed or not.

Students may also indicate interest in presenting a poster instead of presenting orally. However, the decision about whether a research submitted will be presented as a poster or orally will be made by the conference.

Presentation of research at the Turkeyen conference is open to students from the Tain campus, and students from the Turkeyen campus may also present at the Tain Conference. Students need to indicate which conference they wish to be considered for and may request both.
