The Honors College

Each day, Monday, April 5 through Friday, April 9, the Honors College will host three concurrent, hour-long presentation sessions, each with capacity for four students to present their work. These Honors College presentation sessions are restricted to Honors College students and will occur at the following times each day: 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm. The Honors College will host a maximum of 60 presentation sessions, or 240 individual student presentations, over the course of the week.

L@s GANAS

Each day, Monday, April 5 through Thursday April 8, at 5:30pm, L@s GANAS will host a one-hour-long research panel, with capacity for four students to present their work. These L@s GANAS research panels are open only to students affiliated with L@s GANAS. In total, L@s GANAS will offer four research panel sessions, or 16 student presentations, over the course of the week.

Impact/CURA

On Wednesday, April 7, UIC Impact and the UIC Office of Undergraduate Research have teamed up to host concurrent, hour-long presentations sessions, each with capacity for 4 students to present their work. Registration for these sessions are geared toward students who will be presenting impact projects and those who have received a CURA award. Other students from across campus who are engaged in undergraduate impact and research projects are also invited to register for these sessions. Sessions will occur at the following times on Wednesday, April 7: 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm, and 3:00pm. Over the course of the day, UIC Impact/CURA will host a maximum of 12 presentation sessions, corresponding to up to 48 individual student presentations.

Important Things to Know Before Registering:

  • In registering, students will need to select one session (day and time) offered by the unit with which they plan to present (e.g., Honors College, L@s GANAS, CURA, and/or Impact).
  • If the student or project is affiliated with multiple sponsoring units, the student may register to present with whichever unit they feel is best suited to their work or fits their schedule.
  • Students may present only one time over the entire week.
  • Some sessions have a preferred set of disciplines listed, and while students are strongly encouraged to register for times with preferences that align with the content of the work, students may ultimately register for the session that best fit their schedule.
  • Each session will include multiple slots; students will thus be one of several presenters in their session.
  • Within each presentation session/panel, each student presenter will have approximately 7-10 minutes to make their presentation.
  • Each presentation session/panel will be scored by a panel of Faculty/Staff judges. Time will be reserved for judges to ask each student questions about their presentation.
  • Students may present as part of a group/team, however, a single registration will be submitted for both presenters and as such, those who wish to present as a group should elect one person to submit the registration on behalf of the entire group.
  • Please be Aware:
    • Students will have 20 minutes to complete the registration process. You will need to include your abstract 300-word as part of the process; due to the time limitation for registration, it is highly recommended that you have your abstract completed prior to starting the process so that you may simply copy/paste your abstract in the required registration field.
    • After registering, email your completed abstract to ird@uic.edu to ensure that all formatting and characters are accurately captured.
