Student Research Conference

The 2021 Annual Student Research Conference

Sponsored by Graduate School and Research

April 14-15, 2021 | 8 am - 4 pm | Jack B. Kelley Student Center and Zoom

West Texas A & M University’s (WTAMU) annual Student Research Conference is designed to showcase the exceptional research and creative projects being pursued by undergraduate and graduate students—those attending WTAMU, as well as students from other educational institutions. Students present their work in professional venues, including poster and artistic exhibits, as well as paper and performance panels. Students are invited (but not required) to compete for cash awards through the conference as well, and are judged and critiqued by an interdisciplinary group of faculty members. In this unique venue, students are able to see the way their work compares with that of others at their stage of academic development, gain feedback on their work and presentation skills, and learn the intricacies of professional presentation in their particular fields.

Each year WTAMU invites submissions from undergraduate and graduate students across the region for research presentations. Students can only compete in ONE of the categories listed below.

Select the category of interest from below and click the link for entry and competition information. In order to be eligible for the cash awards, the student must submit the online registration form; including abstract, and email their final paper or a .pdf no larger than 35mb of the final poster to src@wtamu.edu by 5pm on Friday, April 2, 2021.

Oral and Paper Presentations

For the 2021 conference, oral presentations of research and oral presentations components of the paper competition will be held as in-person sessions, with limited size for social distancing, but with the option for a Zoom presentation by all participants. Poster sessions will all be conducted via Zoom. Students should know how to use Zoom with video and audio and how to share their screen for presentation before the conference.

Oral and paper presenters must wear a mask at all times except when presenting. Social distancing will be insured. Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available at all conference sites.
