Symposium to highlight student research


May 08, 2007

ASU students will be able to showcase their science and engineering research at the fifth annual Research in Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RISE) Symposium Oct. 5 in the Memorial Union at ASU's Tempe campus. To participate, students must submit proposals by May 25.

The symposium, organized by the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering's Graduate Student Association (FGSA) and supported by the Fulton Investment, is open to all students studying science and engineering. Contributions to the symposium can take the form of a paper, presentation or poster detailing class-related research or other research not sponsored by the university.

Cash prizes will be awarded to selected winners in the category of best paper ($300), best presentation ($150) and best poster ($150).

During the daylong event, students will display posters and give oral presentations to be judged by a panel of faculty members. The event provides students an opportunity to practice professional presentation techniques, experience the process of submitting a paper to a peer-reviewed conference, and receive feedback from peers in the science and engineering community and industry professionals.

The event previously was known as the Research in Engineering and Applied Science Symposium. Its name has been changed to encourage students from all branches of science and engineering studies to participate.
