Apply to Present Your Research at the Annual Meeting of the Southern Regional Science Association

January 12th, 2018

 

There is an exciting opportunity for undergraduate researchers in Philadelphia, PA at the 57th Annual Meeting of the Southern Regional Science Association (SRSA)! SRSA is a regional scholarly organization for the advancement of regional science, which draws from various disciplines including economics, geography, and urban planning. The SRSA Meeting will be held from March 15th through March 17th, 2018.

This year, the SRSA Meeting will include the second annual undergraduate research poster session as well as other activities targeted at exposing undergraduate students to research and regional science and making the conference meaningful for participating undergraduates. The poster session will include 3 to 5 minute presentations by each student describing the poster and research, followed by informal browsing and discussion about the posters.

SRSA will waive the registration fee for undergraduate students who participate in this session! Each student will be required to have a faculty sponsor (whether or not the sponsor is able to attend). 

To encourage exploration of regional science and research by undergraduate students, SRSA accept a relatively broad range of research topics. Broadly, regional science encompasses research related to the regional impacts of national or global processes of economic and social change and participants at the SRSA conference include economists, resource economists, geographers, demographers, urban planners, and even sociologists and community designers.

The SRSA crowd is very welcoming and encouraging to young scholars and it is an excellent venue for undergraduates that are new to academic conferences. students interested in presenting at this conference should look into applying to the Undergraduate Fund for Academic Conferences for funding support.
