STEM Undergraduate Symposium

Update on 2020 Undergraduate Research Symposium

The 2020 LSSF STEM Undergraduate Research Symposium, previously scheduled for April 11 at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus, is postponed until Fall 2020 due to global precautions for the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the state of Florida's public health emergency declaration, and building upon recommendation from the World Heath Organization.

We’re committed to the health and wellbeing of our attendees, partners, and the community as a whole. This decision follows careful consideration, and this postponement will enable us to provide the experience that our customers, partners, and employees expect and deserve in a safe environment.

We look forward to holding our 2020 conference later this year and highlighting extrodinary student research from across the South Florida region.


The STEM Undergraduate Research Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their research and network with other undergraduate researchers from across 12 colleges and universities. Past symposium winners and presenters, graduate schools, and science industries will be present at the Symposium. This event provides STEM students with a forum through which to build connections with graduate schools and gain exposure to STEM industries in the South Florida region. In addition, the Symposium is a prime opportunity for students, faculty, and STEM industry members to network and initiate collaboration.
