Below are venues (conferences and meetings) for students to present the results of their undergraduate research or creative activities. Please note, the deadlines for submitting an abstract to individual conferences are often several months in advance of the conference itself. For some conferences, the number of presentation slots from each institution are limited in which case Cortland's Undergraduate Research Council will review and select student presenters to represent SUNY Cortland. SUNY Cortland undergraduate students who have their presentation accepted for a conference are eligible to receive a URC Travel Grant and should apply for one (see funding links to left) in advance of the deadline in the semester in which the conference is held.
