The 2018 National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will be held April 4-7, 2018, on the University of Central Oklahoma Campus in Edmond. Established in 1987, NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.


  • Over 5,000 students are expected to come from all across the United States.
  • Seventy percent of students surveyed prefer NCUR to other professional conferences.
  • Abstract submissions are open through December 5, 2017.
