American Geophysical Union Virtual Poster Showcases

An exciting new opportunity for undergraduate graduate students to showcase their research is being piloted and launched by AGU this year. While many students conduct research with faculty, as part of their course work, or as part of their degree program, they often face barriers to traveling to present that research, especially at national conferences. The virtual poster showcases will allow participation by those students who can’t travel. Information for 2019 is TBD.

AAAS 2018 Annual Meeting
  • February 14th-17th, 2019, The AAAS Annual Meeting is interdisciplinary and inclusive. Each year, thousands of leading scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers, and journalists gather together to discuss recent developments in science and technology. Student posters are accepted. Students may also volunteer to get free registration and subscription to Science magazine.
World Congress on Undergraduate Research

Abstracts may now be submitted for the Second World Congress on Undergraduate Research (World CUR), which will provide an opportunity for global dialogue across many different fields of inquiry and will offer publication and award opportunities for undergraduates. World CUR will be held at Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in Germany on May 23-25, 2019.READ MORE


How do you share the results?

The Student Resources page has a variety of resources to help you put together your poster or oral presentation. Check our Events for workshops, too.

Where can you share your results?

"After my presentation, I met several students and professors who challenged my understanding of my research topic and asked interesting questions that I would not have asked myself."

- Marcus Daum, OSCAR Fellow, BS Physics
