Event Type: 

The University of Nebraska - Lincoln is bringing together outstanding student researchers for a three-day conference from Thursday, November 9 - Saturday, November 11 2017. You are invited to take part in this unique opportunity to expand upon your current research experiences, interact with students from other universities, and attend scientific talks given by scientists who are leaders in their field.

The conference is organized by UNL's Materials Research Science and Engineering Center MRSEC and by Nebraska-Kansas EPSCoR.  We invite research active undergraduate students in physical sciences to attend this conference. If you are currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in physics, chemistry, engineering, astronomy or related STEM disciplines, then this conference is for you!

As a participant you will be able to present your research results to your peers during invited talks or poster sessions. Social activities will also provide time for you to share your experiences and interests with other students, as well as visit with faculty members from UNL and other universities. These experiences will contribute to a successful career in physical sciences by providing opportunities for you to develop your ability to convey your ideas, establish relationships with other colleagues, and obtain advice and guidance for pursuing your career.

The conference will be held on UNL's city campus in downtown Lincoln, NE. Participants will stay at "The Graduate Lincoln" hotel, conveniently located in the heart of the Historic Haymarket District near specialty shops and restaurants and just a few walking minutes from the conference site.

All local expenses, including food and hotel accommodation, are covered by our sponsors, and there is no registration fee. In some cases, we are able to provide travel scholarships to undergraduate participants. Support is given upon request by the supervising faculty.
