The conference will be held in the second floor of the Student Union Building, with student poster presentations happening from 11:45 a.m.-1:45 p.m. both days in the Simplot Ballroom.
The Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research aims to promote mentored undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity in Idaho in all disciplines. In addition, it encourages engagement of undergraduate students from multiple disciplines in research, builds an extended scholarly community across institutional boundaries in Idaho and ensures diversity in institutional representation, discipline and students’ backgrounds.
