Event Location:

Online through Zoom

The annual Undergraduate Physics Research Symposium will be held online through Zoom on September 4, 2020. We encourage all undergraduate physics students to pursue research during their time at UCSB by providing them with an outlet for their intellectual creativity. It is important that students are capable of not only delving deep into the specific realm of physics, but also telling their story to their fellow physics colleagues of another field.



The Symposium is open to all UCSB undergraduate Physics majors and any undergraduate researcher working in the Physics Department.


Symposium style:

The presentation will follow the APS March Meeting Format. Each talk will be 10 minutes long, with 2 minutes allowed for questions.


How to Apply:

Before you apply, make sure you get consent from your mentor/research advisor.

Fill out the application form and email to yiluo_li@ucsb.edu with the EXACT subject title “2020 Physics Research Symposium Application” before August 20, 2020. We do not accept late or incomplete submission. Note that you do not have to submit your final abstract for application. Once accepted, you will have until August 27, 2020 to finalize your final abstract and presentation title.
