The CNS Undergraduate Research Forum is a virtual event this year! We are looking for faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff to serve as judges to evaluate posters and oral presentations and to provide feedback for the students. 

The plan is to post all of the research presentations – pdf’s of posters and recordings of oral presentations – on the publicly accessible Undergraduate Research Forum web site. There is no live interaction with student presenters this year, so the timeline for judging will be very flexible.

It's a simple process to volunteer to be a judge – you RSVP at the link below, and on the morning of Forum (Fri, Apr 17) you'll receive an email with a link to the posters and/or oral presentations we'd like to you review along with instructions for using a simple, online judging form. This review can take place any time between 8am - 5pm on that Friday, and you can judge as few or as many posters as you like. 

Thank you for supporting our students!

Volunteer Judges: Sign Up Here 


Not participating in the Forum this year? Come out and volunteer. We are always looking for extra hands to check in participants, put up posters, run small errands, and just help us make this event go off with a blast.
