The 2020 event has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We still anticipate hosting the event in Summer 2021.

We welcome your interest in the symposium.  Registration is free.  ALL attendees including student presenters, non-presenters, mentors, administrators, and judges MUST register by completing this registration form.  More than one student with the same mentor can present their research as long as projects are independent of one another.  Nevertheless, registration does not guarantee an opportunity to present your research, because space is limited.  There will be 12 oral presentations and 90 poster presentations.  Despite this limitation, we have been able to accommodate all applicants in the past and do not anticipate any issues.  An asterisk (*) denotes required fields.

Registration Opens: TBA
