The UIS Science Research Symposium 2001-2011

The inaugural Student Technology, Arts, and Research Symposium was held in 2012. The precursor to STARS was the UIS Science Research Symposium. This page includes archived material from the Science Symposium.


Research Symposium Goals:

The primary goals of the symposium were to encourage scientific dialogue among the colleges and participants, Sara Paver discusses her research on the Illinois River Floodplain with fellow students.and to inform the academic community of the scientific research conducted at UIS and neighboring campuses.

The Symposium was open to undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty involved in applied or theoretical research. We particularly encouraged the presentations by the students, and prizes are awarded for the best student poster and best oral presentation by a student. The symposium offers a good opportunity to present the preliminary findings of a study.
