SUBJECT:    Call for Nominations and Moderators – 32nd Annual Undergraduate Research Conference

We invite your nomination of outstanding undergraduate students to
participate in the 32nd Annual Undergraduate Research Conference on
Saturday, May 18 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Ida and Cecil Green
Faculty Club. The deadline to nominate is April 2, 2019.

The conference provides undergraduates with the opportunity to present
research papers, experiments or other projects at small informal
roundtable sessions, moderated by a member of the faculty. The 150 to
200 students who have participated in the conference in recent years
have found it to be both a challenging and richly rewarding experience.

The Undergraduate Research Conference supports the scholarly and
creative aspirations of UC San Diego undergraduates and provides
increased opportunities for their intellectual recognition and
encouragement. The conference is UC San Diego's signature campus-wide
recognition opportunity for undergraduate research. To participate,
students must be nominated by a UC San Diego faculty member. Student
presenters attending will have the opportunity to engage with faculty
and will receive a certificate recognizing their scholarly achievements.
A catered breakfast and buffet lunch will be provided.

To nominate up to three outstanding students to participate in the 32nd
Annual Undergraduate Research Conference,

1) Complete the online form at

2) Inform the student of the nomination.

In addition, we hope you will consider serving as a roundtable moderator
at the event. You do not need to have a student in the conference to
serve as moderator. If you would like to volunteer, please complete the
form at the following link by April 12, 2019:

at UC San Diego. We appreciate your support of this valuable program.
