Welcome to the LSU Undergraduate Research Conference (URC), “Excite/Explore/Experiment,” website! For participants who have attended our conference in the past, we have undergone a name change from the Triple EX Conference to the LSU URC, to better describe what the conference is all about!
We welcome all participants to our 4th annual conference! Our goal is to provide a dynamic forum for undergraduate students to present their research in a competition, allowing for interaction with faculty, and also an environment to develop collaborations with their peers.
