The Digital Scholarship Commons is thrilled to announce the first Undergraduate Digital Research Symposium on April 19, 2017. At UC Santa Cruz, undergraduate students are engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms. This symposium will showcase innovative undergraduate research and celebrate the digital projects that students develop in class.

Join us to explore and engage with public facing, media-rich, critically engaged, and creative student research. The event will include a digital poster session, two panels featuring undergraduate work, and a keynote address by Jaye Padgett, Interim Vice Provost for Student Success. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees.

8:30 – 9:00am Light Breakfast and Coffee
9:00 – 9:15am Welcome, Elizabeth Cowell (University Librarian)
9:15 – 10:00am Digital Poster Session
10:00 – 10:45am Panel 1: Undergraduate Digital Research Fellows
11:00 – 11:45am Panel 2: The Gail Project, Team Leaders
12:00 – 1:00pm Lunch (Brown Bag lunch provided for all registered attendees)
1:00 – 1:45pm Keynote: Jaye Padgett (Interim Vice Provost for Student Success)

Highlights of the Symposium include:

Six student groups will be showcasing digital projects (both independent research + class work) in a Digital Poster Session
Eight undergrads will be participating in two panels discussing independent research.


All proposals must be submitted online by Friday, March 24.

We invite all undergraduate students engaged in creative, critical research using digital tools and platforms to submit proposals for a Digital Poster Session. As part of the larger symposium, the Digital Poster Session provides an opportunity for students to display their work and invite one-on-one conversation without a formal presentation. The Digital Poster Sessions allows students to highlight the interactivity of their work by presenting live digital projects and we encourage you submit live projects or project prototypes when possible. Classroom work is welcome: you can submit a proposal for individual or group work as long as all authors are represented on the project.

Proposals should include:

Project Title
Brief project description (4 -5 sentences)
Brief summary of the technology used in your research
