One of the purposes of the 2009 HBCU-UP National Research Conference is to provide students an opportunity to share their research through poster sessions and oral presentations. Students are invited to submit abstracts of their research in seven science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Student participation in the HBCU-UP Conference is limited to students who submit abstracts which are then accepted for either the poster or oral presentation sessions. Accepted abstracts for poster and oral presentations will be published in the HBCU-UP Conference Program Book, and prizes will be awarded in each discipline.
Faculty members and exhibitors are invited to serve as on-site judges for the poster sessions and oral presentations.
