The TRU Undergraduate Research and Innovation Conference is an opportunity for students from all programs, departments, and areas of study at TRU to share their work with the rest of campus and the larger community, either as a poster or as a 15-minute lecture.
The 2018 conference will take place March 23 & 24. To apply, follow the “Submit Proposal” link to the left; the application deadline is Monday February 5, 2018.
Students applying should have been a student in a TRU undergraduate program in either the Fall 2017 or Winter 2018 semester, and have a faculty supervisor willing to support them in preparing their work for the conference.
The 12th annual Undergraduate Research & Innovation Conference is next week, Friday March 31 and Saturday April 1.
The program is now available at http://digitalcommons.library.tru.ca/urc/
Students (and their faculty supervisors) have put a lot of time and effort into their presentations; we encourage everyone to come out and give them an audience, even if you’ve just got the time to catch a talk or two, or to view posters for an hour.
Check out the full program, including the social events – everyone is invited to all parts of the conference, including the Friday evening Reception and Theatre (both free, no tickets required).
Thank you in advance for supporting this event and all of our amazing student researchers; we hope to see you at the conference!
The application deadline for the 12th annual TRU Undergraduate Research & Innovation Conference is being extended until midnight on Tuesday February 14.
It is still not too late to share a poster or 15-minute concurrent lecture session.

The 11th annual TRU Undergraduate Research & Innovation Conference will take place March 18-19, 2016. This is an opportunity for students from all programs, departments, and areas of study at TRU to share their work with the rest of campus and the larger community, either as a poster or as a 15-minute lecture.
In order to present at the conference, students must submit an Application Form of their proposed presentation (available here).
Proposals must come from current TRU undergraduate students, and students must have a faculty supervisor willing to sign off and agree to help them prepare for the conference. The deadline for proposals will be 11:59 pm Monday February 1, 2016.
Before completing an Application Form, it is recommended that you:
- consider whether you want to give a 15 minute talk, present a poster, or both
- think about a title that is both catchy and that describes your presentation
- write your abstract; get an edited final version that is 1500 characters or less written and edited, and then just cut and paste it into the form
- discuss your presentation and get input on your abstract from a faculty supervisor who is willing to assist you with preparing for the conference
More information about writing an abstract can be found here:
All students who submit a proposal will be notified whether it’s been accepted by Friday February 12, 2016, so that they can start preparing over Reading Week. As well, a series of drop-in workshops to help presenters prepare will be announced in early February. We look forward to reading your proposals and seeing your work!
