Central Arkansas Research Symposium
Second Annual Central Arkansas Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
July 24, 2013
William J. Clinton Presidential Center
We cordially invite undergraduate researchers and their faculty mentors to participate in the Second Annual Central Arkansas Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held all day at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center on July 24, 2013. The summer symposium will provide a venue to celebrate the achievements of undergraduates pursuing research projects at colleges and universities across central Arkansas. After all, the foundation for strong research programs in Arkansas requires recognition of the research accomplishments by our students and opportunities to discuss science for gaining feedback, learning new ideas, and fostering collaborations. This summer symposium will feature short talks and posters from undergraduate researchers covering a broad range of disciplines including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and computational sciences. This event will be hosted by the Graduate School and Basic Science Departments at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences as well as the NIH–supported INBRE program. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the symposium at no costs to participants. The conference was such a success last year that we worked hard to bring it back this year and expand the invitation to other undergraduate research programs. At this time, please mark your calendars and make plans to attend this great event for our undergraduate researchers. In late May, we will send out a more detailed announcement on this event, so stay tuned!
We look forward to seeing you,
Kevin D. Raney and Grover P. Miller, Co-organizers
