SOAR Presentation & Conference Opportunities


There are many venues in which to present your research findings, both within BCM and at external conferences. Your research mentor is likely to be an excellent source of information regarding meetings within your field of research. You also may wish to consider the information below to learn about conference opportunities. Students are also encouraged to visit the Student Resources section of the SOAR webpage for tips on how prepare an abstract or research presentation.

External Conferences

A list of external meeting opportunities is available encompassing local, state, regional, national and international conferences. This searchable resource has been complied using conference suggestions from individual students and student interest groups (see below). Each entry contains information on the conferences and their sponsoring organizations, with website links to obtain up-to-date meeting information. Please note that this is not an exhaustive listing of conferences. Check back from time to time as new conference listings will be added to the listing throughout the year.

Meeting websites should be consulted for information on meeting location, abstract submission guidelines, and registration costs and deadlines. Many conferences offer student discounts and travel awards to help defray costs of attending. Consult the website of your conference of interest to find out how to apply. In addition, students may apply for assistance from the SOAR Office by navigating to the SOAR Travel Awards page. Additional information on cost saving tips for attending conferences can be found on there.
