BU’s Scholars Day

Formally BU Science and Engineering Research Symposium ,  BU’s Scholars Day will be held on Tuesday April 2, 2013 and is open to any graduate student or postdoctoral fellow.

The abstract submission form for Scholars Day 2013 will be available online between March 1 – 17th at http://www.bu.edu/research/aboutus/events/scholars-day/ Please note: a BU Kerberos password and email is required to submit an abstract.

The abstract submission deadline is 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, March 17, 2013. Upon submission, students are responsible for corresponding with their advisors to ensure approval of their abstracts by Friday, March 22, 2013.  Students whose abstracts are not approved by the deadline will not have a designated location at the event.

All graduate students in a degree-granting program at Boston University who are also engaged in research in any area of study are invited to participate. Postdoctoral researchers are also welcome, but are not eligible for awards.

The event will take place on Tuesday, April 2, 2013  in the gallery space of 808 Commonwealth Avenue.

This event is intended to honor and celebrate research by our graduate students and has been held at Boston University for nearly two decades. During that time the number and quality of presentations has grown enormously, as has the number of awards presented. Judging will be done using a standardized scorecard so that prizes are awarded equitably.

Students will be asked to begin hanging their posters at 9:30 a.m.  Judging will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Please plan to be present during as much of this time as possible, as you may need to assist the judges in their understanding of your work. The winners will be announced at a 4 p.m. reception.
