About the Conference

Each year, UC Davis undergraduates in all academic fields are invited to submit an abstract and registration information to participate in the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conference. Research projects must have been conducted under the supervision of a faculty member or professional in the field. The conference is designed to acquaint undergraduate students with the process and academic rigors of presenting research in a scholarly manner.

For the 2020 Conference, students presented their research and design projects to faculty, staff and other conference participants with a video presentation (accompanying their poster or slides) and opportunities for interactive Q&A. 

The Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference is organized by a campus-wide committee and sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Center, with support from Undergraduate Education, Student Affairs, Global Affairs and University Library.

The 32nd Annual Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference will take place on April 30th and May 1st, 2021.  

Abstract submission will be accepted beginning in January 2021.
