University of Pennsylvania or who completed a graduate degree in
December 2015 are eligible to submit a proposal to present recently
completed or ongoing research or creative works. All submissions must

to the quality of the work. Please note that research done in
collaboration with faculty or practicing professionals is eligible for

All students, faculty, and the general public are invited to attend. Students have the opportunity to see scholarly work in their disciplines, learn how to present their own work at a conference, get ideas for future research, support friends who are presenting, and satisfy a course requirement (attendance vouchers are available).
Students are required to have a faculty sponsor willing to provide guidance and support. The professor helps determine an appropriate topic, method, data source, etc. The faculty adviser does not have to be from the student’s department, though faculty members in the student’s major are the best resource to help guide a research project and to give advice on how a project will enhance the student’s future career goals. Students should speak with professors in their current classes and/or make an appointment to speak with the department chairperson. The chairperson knows all of the department faculty’s research interests and can provide a recommendation on who to ask.
When you arrive at the HUB, you must stop at the registration table (near the front desk) to pick up your registration materials. Please remember to dress appropriately. You should wear professional attire. Jeans and t-shirts are not acceptable.
An awards presentation will be held during which the prize winners for each college will be announced. We hope that all participants will attend the awards ceremony. The time and location of the ceremony will be posted once the schedule is finalized.
Please encourage your faculty members, friends, and family to come to the forum; they will be impressed at the scope and professionalism of the presentations.
Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day.
