URC 2016


Although the submission portal does not open until December 7, mark your calendars: February 8, 2016 is the date of Butler University's 28th annual Undergraduate Research Conference (URC).  

Last year, the URC featured over 500 presentations and included almost 1000 attendees. We hope you'll join us this year!

The URC features oral presentations, poster presentations, and art exhibits. The URC has been developed to provide a safe and supportive environment for young scholars to share their research and creative endeavors. Since all submissions are accepted for presentation, be certain that you are able to present at the conference and submit your abstract prior to the February 10 deadline as no late submissions will be accepted.

The submission process involves creating an account, submitting a 250 word abstract, and registering for the conference.

If you need assistance submitting your work or registering for the conference, you may contact us via e-mail (urc-email@butler.edu) or via telephone (317.940.9581) Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

URC participants not enrolled at Butler University--presenters, attendees, and faculty sponsors--will need to remit a $50.00 registration fee. This registration fee includes a continental breakfast, box lunch, and conference T-shirt. URC participants enrolled at Butler University wishing to purchase a conference T-shirt will need to remit a $5.00 registration fee; if Butler participants do not wish to purchase a T-shirt, then no fee is required. All conference registration fees are due no later than March 25, 2016.
