Greetings from UMBC,
This is a notice about the extension of the abstract submission deadline and
an update about the plenary speaker for the 18th Annual Undergraduate Research
Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences.
Abstracts, using the prescribed format, must be uploaded to the event website
by the extended deadline, Monday, September 7, 2015 at midnight EST. Student
researchers are encouraged to read the abstract submission instructions on the
Plenary Talk & Workshops
We are pleased to announce Lee Blaney will give the plenary talk “Emerging
contaminants and resources: Environmental solutions to global problems” during
the symposium at 3PM. Lee Blaney is an Assistant Professor in the Department
of Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering at UMBC. As done last
year, two workshops will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. and repeated again at 1:30
p.m. The additional details for the plenary talk and workshops are available
online at: http://cnmssymposium.umbc.edu/speakers-special-events/.
Volunteer judges are critical to the success of this annual symposium. We ask
faculty members, research mentors, and other professionals with PhDs in the
chemical and biological sciences to consider volunteering when registering.
Additional information about judging is provide on the website:
http://cnmssymposium.umbc.edu/judges/. Judges are asked to complete their
registrations by Midnight EST, Monday, September 15, 2015.
This event will take place on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at the University of
Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, MD 21250.
As in prior years, the Symposium invites mentor-approved submissions from
undergraduates investigating any aspect of chemistry, biology and
biochemistry. This research will be disseminated in a daylong event that
typically offers nearly 200 student contributions and gathers more than 400
beginning scientists, mentors, and other guests. The event features two poster
sessions with posters judged by pairs of participating mentors and other
qualified attendees. Judges will rank first and second place posters in each
category with non-financial awards presented at the event’s end.
We look forward to having you and your students participate in the 18th Annual
Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences at
With best regards,
