2018 Abstract Book and Winners

1:00pm - 5:00pm
UIC Forum
725 West Roosevelt Road

The Student Research Forum represents one of the finest student-run activities at UIC. Led by members of the Student Research Forum Steering Committee, the event allows student officers and members to be involved in all aspects of planning, from catering to judging to encouraging fellow students to participate.  SRFSC members have the chance to interact with faculty and staff from across campus during the planning phases of the event and help make the event meet the needs of students.  SRFSC members worked with the Honors College this year to plan a series of events designed to assist students in writing an abstract, preparing their poster and planning their presentation.  It is one of the few student activities that is academic in nature and includes the entire student body; undergraduate, graduate and professional. The Forum provides a venue for students at UIC to present their scholarly efforts and is an event in which the campus celebrates the wealth of research across all disciplines carried out by the dedicated students of this campus.

Students from all disciplines (Arts, Business, Computer Science, Engineering, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, among others) are invited to present their work one-on-one to Forum attendees and judges during a high-energy 3-hour session, followed by an awards ceremony. Monetary awards will be given in various categories. Research presentations are accompanied by a poster or other visual display that captures the spirit of the research work and/or highlights key features of the project.

If you have a disability and need an accommodation in order to participate in this event, please call (312) 413-0075 or email ovcrweb@uic.edu at least one week prior to the event.

Due to recent events, the UIC Forum is requiring metal detector screening and bag searches by a licensed security firm.  We will have four lines open in order to expedite the screening.  We know this might take some extra time and apologize for any inconvenience caused.  For a list of prohibited items, please see below.  I’ve also attached our facility guide in case you have any other questions regarding building policy.
