Who should attend GURP:
GURP is a day-long conference that fosters development of new researchers.
Historically, presenters have been undergraduate, post baccalaureate, and
high school students from the southeast. We are also now inviting
abstracts from junior graduate students (within the first two years of
study). We hope that this will give graduate students a venue for their
first conference presentations and give undergraduate students an
opportunity to network with graduate students to learn more about graduate
We encourage you to make plans to attend,
even if you dont present, so that you may learn more about research and
gain conference experience.
During GURP 2012, we welcomed approximately 150 attendees from 23 colleges
and universities in five states. We are pleased to report that students
delivered 17 oral and 60
poster presentations at that conference.
