27th Annual Research Conference, 2022

The University of North Georgia's 27th Annual Research Conference will be held on the Gainesville campus in the Martha T. Nesbitt building and will occur on Friday, March 25, 2022. We will hold both a poster session and a live oral presentation from around 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

ARC invites student research presentations, posters, and creative activities from across the disciplines. Specific guidelines for each type of presentation are listed below. We are looking for interesting, innovative, and thought-provoking research and creative projects. Abstracts should be submitted by February 18, 2022 at midnight to Digital Commons.

We also welcome panel proposals, where students suggest an entire panel of linked presentations. Students should submit individual abstracts and add a note in the “Note to Conference Administrators” to let us know they are a panel. We also accept presentations on proposed work (theoretical research yet to be completed).

All proposals will be reviewed by a cross-disciplinary panel of judges.
