Undergraduate Research Student Conferences

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 apply for a URC Travel Grant. 

National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. The annual conference gives undergraduate scholars in all fields and from all types of institutions of higher learning a forum to share the results of their work through posters, presentations, performances and works of art. The 2024 National Conference will be held in Long Beach, California. Please visit National Conferences on Undergraduate Research for information. 


SURC (SUNY Annual Undergraduate Research Conference)

The SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC) is a multidisciplinary event bringing together undergraduate student researchers and faculty mentors from across the SUNY system for activities, including sessions devoted to student presentations—oral, performance, artistic displays, and posters.
