1:00pm - 5:00pm
UIC Forum, 725 West Roosevelt Road
We encourage all UI alumni to attend the UIC Student Research Forum, and also to serve as judges.
The Student Research Forum represents one of the finest student-run activities at UIC. It is one of the few student activities that is academic in nature and includes the entire student body; undergraduate, graduate and professional. The Forum provides a venue for students at UIC to present their scholarly efforts and is an event in which the campus celebrates the wealth of research across all disciplines carried out by the dedicated students of this campus.
Students from all disciplines (Arts, Business, Computer Science, Engineering, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, among others) are invited to present their work one-on-one to Forum attendees and judges during a high-energy 3-hour session, followed by an awards ceremony. Monetary awards will be given in various categories. Research presentations are accompanied by a poster or other visual display that captures the spirit of the research work and/or highlights key features of the project. For additional event details...

Description of Duties of Alumni Judges
Judges will be required to rate the quality of each student's presentation in the following three categories: 1) abstract, 2) poster/display, and 3) 7 minute presentation plus 3 minute question-and-answer period. Significant latitude will be offered on how to assign points in each category, although a suggested point breakdown will be given on the judging form. Judging forms will be given on the conference day, during check-in (from 12pm-12:30pm). We expect that judges will evaluate a minimum of three presentations. For additional details about judging...
