Presenting Your Research

Below you will find information on two of OSU's yearly research symposiums as well as the opportunity to present research outside of OSU. 

There you will find important submission requirements, deadlines, contact information, and additional conference resources. Be sure to communicate with your faculty mentor to make sure this conference is appropriate for your project and that you will be able to meet all submission requirements by the deadline.
