REU Symposium

Symposium for Undergraduate Research in Data Science, Systems, and Security (REU Symposium)

This symposium as a special session at a major international conference, see each link below.
One day in November/December

Undergraduate research plays an important role in attracting our best undergraduates to continue towards graduate education in the science and engineering fields. Publishing research in a professional venue is part of the training for future researchers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides support for undergraduate research within the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. The goal of this Symposium is to provide a venue for students to publish their research done as part of the REU program. The symposium seeks original submissions in research areas that are currently funded by the NSF’s directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) or other related directorates. The research topics of this symposium focus on Data Science, Systems, and Security. Research done by undergraduate researchers without explicit funding sources or via funding from similar programs such as Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) are also eligible to submit.
To promote research experiences in K-12, in 2023, high school students are also eligible to submit although it is highly recommended such submissions are in collaboration with undergraduate students and/or faculty mentors.

The key requirement for this Symposium is that the submission’s lead author must be an undergraduate student or high school student.
