Offering members of the community the opportunity to present their work on a regional platform and form professional partnerships, the Dixie State University Undergraduate Research Office’s Second Annual Regional Symposium for Innovation, Creativity and Research is now accepting submissions through March 5.
This event offers regional community members a forum to present cutting-edge research, innovation and creative projects in various formats, including lectures, posters, presentations and displays. All members of the community and surrounding region are invited to submit and participate in the symposium. The deadline for abstract submission is 11:59 p.m. on March 5. The symposium will take place from 1 to 6 p.m. on April 6 in the Snow Math & Science Center on the Dixie State campus. Submissions and entrance to the event are both free and open to the public.
“There are a number of people in the Washington County community who are spearheading new technologies, theories and artistic productions,” Rico Del Sesto, DSU director of undergraduate research, said. “This event will be an ideal venue for our community to gather and share their exciting discoveries and ideas.”
The symposium gives scholars the opportunity to network and collaborate beyond the classroom, fostering relationships between the campus and community and building new partnerships within and across academic disciplines. During the symposium, local businesses will host booths to provide information and discuss potential career opportunities.
“The Regional Research Symposium is a great way to strengthen connections across the community and enhance collaborative efforts that spark innovation and creativity,” Del Sesto said.
