Undergraduate Research Conference


About the URC

The next URC conference is expected to occur in spring quarter 2023. Please check back here in 2023 for more details about presenting and attending.

A Celebration of Academic Excellence

URC is one of UC San Diego's most inclusive academic events celebrating undergraduate excellence in research. Presenters must be nominated by a faculty member to participate in the conference, which is open to students of all disciplines and class standings. 

Nominated students share the results of their research with their peers and the larger UC San Diego community. All UC San Diego students, faculty, and family and friends of the presenters are welcome to attend.

URC Panels

Student Presentations

Each student has 10 minutes to present their research projects orally (with slides). There will also be some time to answer questions during the session. Students presenting in pairs will have 12 minutes.


One moderator will be present in each panel to monitor time and facilitate discussions.


Presentations will be centered around a subject area, enabling group discussion around the 3 - 4 presentations.
