Dear TRU Community,

This year the 12th annual TRU Undergraduate Research & Innovation Conference will take place March 31 & April 1, 2017.

This is your opportunity to showcase your research to the TRU community, peers and boarder community. The application process is simple.

To apply:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on “Submit Proposal” on the left-hand side of the page
  3. Sign up to “Create a New Account in Digital Commons”, and then follow submission instructions.

Note: Proposal deadlines are Monday, February 6.

Students applying should read the Submission Agreement in full; they will also need to have a faculty supervisor (someone willing to help them prepare their work for presentation and keep them on track in the weeks leading up to the conference), a presentation title, and an abstract of up to 250 words. The title and abstract should take into consideration that this is a campus-wide, multidisciplinary event that is also open to the larger community.

Anyone having difficulty with the online submission process, or who has questions or concerns, is welcome to contact Elizabeth Rennie ( for assistance.

Looking forward to another great conference!
