Students invited to participate in research conference

Publication Date

Union students are invited to participate in the fourth annual New York Six Undergraduate Research Conference on Saturday, September 20, at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, N.Y.

The conference is sponsored by the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium, of which Union is a member. Other members include Colgate University, Hamilton College, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, St. Lawrence University and Skidmore College.

The aim of the conference is to provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to present their work at a professional meeting without the barriers of high travel and registration fees. It is also an excellent opportunity for faculty in the area to meet one another, foster collaborations, and share the work of their research labs.

Students will have the opportunity to present their research as an oral presentation (12 minutes) or as a poster presentation (posters should be 4' wide x 3' high). Oral presentations will take place as concurrent sessions that are organized by discipline.

Poster presentations will take place over a two-hour period with the opportunity for students to present during one hour and to interact with other presenters in the other hour.

Student presenters can submit abstracts by filling out the form found here.

The deadline is Friday, August 29, and students and faculty will be notified of their acceptance by September 5. For more information, contact conference coordinator Christine de Denus, associate provost at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, at

Established with the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium facilitates collaboration among its member institutions through the sharing of expertise and resources.
