What is an Undergraduate Research Conference?

In 2012, the first Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research was held at Macquarie University. An undergraduate research conference is like any academic conference, except that the presentations are all given by undergraduates who report on research carried out within courses, a summer or other research internship, a research-based degree program, or voluntary work.

An undergraduate research conference provides a great opportunity to meet students from other universities and to share your research. As a multi-disciplinary conference, you will have the opportunity to network with other undergraduate researchers from your own discipline, and also to learn about how other disciplines approach research problems.
