Undergraduate Research Day 2020 - Moving to DRUM Platform

IMPORTANT NOTICE - UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH DAY 2020

WE ARE MOVING TO THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES DRUM (DIGITAL REPOSITORY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND) PLATFORM FOR 2020

To comply with University-wide guidance about minimizing large-gathering infectious disease risks for our students, faculty, and staff, we are moving this year's Undergraduate Research Day poster exhibition to the DRUM (Digital Repository at the University of Maryland) online platform. **We will not host our traditional in-person event at the Stamp Grand Ballroom this year, but will return to this venue in 2021.**

A service of the University of Maryland University Libraries, DRUM collects, preserves, and provides public access to the scholarly output of the university. Faculty and student researchers can upload research products for rapid dissemination, global visibility and impact, and long-term preservation.

DEADLINE : The deadline to submit a poster proposal for this year's DRUM-based Undergraduate Research Day is extended to Friday, April 17, 2020. Submitting a poster proposal is free and easy - just use the online registration system on the MCUR website at http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/current-ugresearchday.html

Students will receive instructions for uploading their poster and supporting information to the Undergraduate Research Day DRUM community site by Monday, April 20, 2020.


Deadline to submit your proposal: Friday, April 17, 2020

The Researchers of the Year Award presentation that normally opens our URD poster exhibition will take place, rescheduled and relocated in a manner consistent with University guidance. Profiles of our awardees will be made available on the MCUR website by Friday, April 24, 2020.

We ask that faculty and administrators contact us at ugresearch@umd.edu with any questions.
