This year’s showcase will be in the Jack Stephens Center from noon to 3 p.m. All currently registered UA Little Rock graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to present their research or creative work as posters, exhibits, installations, performances, or oral presentations individually or as a group. Students may register their project for inclusion in the 2019 showcase here.

Priority registration is March 8. Students who submit a finalized poster by this date will have their printing costs covered through the Office of the Vice Provost for Research. Once their proposal has been approved by the SRCW committee for presentation at the Expo, students will receive instructions for submission of the electronic copy of their poster.

This event is an opportunity for students to showcase their research and creative efforts. Students can submit their project to one of 13 categories: computer science/information science, creative work, economics, education, engineering, health science, humanities, interdisciplinary, life science, physical science, service work/professional application, social science, and social work. Applicable submissions include, but are not limited to, theses and dissertations, honors and capstone projects, independent study projects, and course-related work.
