VTURCS Spring Symposium

The annual VTURCS Research Symposium takes place each year in late spring. The symposium provides students with the opportunity to present their work to their peers and professors to get valuable feedback from a diverse audience. Participants submit a short abstract and create a poster describing their work. Attendees of the symposium select People's Choice Award winners. In addition, a team of distinguished faculty select the Faculty's Choice Award winners. In 2003 we started the Industry Choice awards (now known as the Marston Award thanks to a generous gift from the Marston family) in which representatives from industry select the projects most likely to have an impact on industry. And in 2013 we added the Capstone Award for the best poster resulting from a senior capstone project. VTURCS presenters may want to keep in mind which award(s) they want to target as they prepare and plan their posters, abstracts, and participant interactions!

Spring Symposium 2017

The VTURCS Research Symposium took place on Tuesday April 25th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in Owens Banquet Hall. We had a great crowd--over 200 attendees--including faculty, administrators, industry representatives from our CSRC, and students in attendance to enjoy the posters. Results from the symposium judging and symposium proceedings are available for viewing.
