The CSUN Chapter of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, holds its seventeenth annual student research symposium, with separate sessions for undergraduate and graduate students. Cash awards and certificates of recognition are given to the top presenters in each session.
For Students: To Apply to Give a Talk
Undergraduate and graduate students in all fields of science (biological, physical, social and behavioral), mathematics, engineering, health science, and kinesiology are eligible. Groups of students can present a talk, provided that the group is all undergraduate or all graduate. To apply, save this form as a text file, fill it out (it asks for contact information and an abstract of no more than 200 words), and send it by email to Prof. Daniel Katz (at: [first name] [dot] [last name] [at] csun [dot] edu) before 5:00 PM Monday, 27 April 2015.
For Students: Preparing Your Talk|
The talks will be scheduled every fifteen minutes. Students should prepare a talk of no more than ten minutes. Allow a period of about three minutes for questions at the end of the talk.
For Faculty: Getting Involved|
Faculty can help in two ways. First of all, we encourage you to bring this symposium to the attention of any student who might be interested in presenting. Secondly, we need judges for the talks. Any faculty member in the fields of science (biological, physical, social and behavioral), mathematics, engineering, health science, and kinesiology is qualified to be a judge. Faculty mentors of undergraduate presenters cannot judge sessions for undergraduates, and mentors of graduate students cannot judge graduate sessions. If you are interested in being a judge, contact Daniel Katz (at: [first name] [dot] [last name] [at] csun [dot] edu) at your earliest convenience.
