Florida Undergraduate Research Conference



Abstract submission and conference registration are now closed.

The Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC) is one of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conferences. It is an annual event open to all undergraduate researchers in the state of Florida to present their research in a poster forum. Every year the conference will be hosted at a different university in the state on the last weekend in February. In addition to research presentations, there are also exhibitors from graduate programs and other opportunities targeted for students involved in undergraduate research.

In 2015, FURC will be hosted by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach Florida on February 27-28.
