Lab Expo 2020 Presenter Interest Form
Thank you for your interest in presenting! This form will allow us to sign you up as a presenter in Lab Expo and to send you updates as we approach the event.

Lab Expo is an annual research exposition aimed towards exposing undergraduates to the diverse and thriving research community at UCSD and enriching the community as a whole. Lab Expo’s mission is three-fold: develop scientific literacy, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and encourage scientific advocacy. Lab Expo has been rapidly growing, with an attendance of over 800 undergraduates last year.

This year the event will take place in PC Ballrooms East and West and will host multiple activities. We’d like to invite you to participate in any or all of our events!

We STRONGLY recommend that you attend with a few of your colleagues. We also invite you to encourage undergraduates in your laboratory to present and get some practice their speaking skills at a low-pressure, relaxing setting. We also want you to have the liberty to network with our diverse group of presenters and find inspirations or collaboration opportunities.

About Our Events:

Lab Expo Graduate Showdown (LEGS):
LEGS is a new event! We encourage you to step into this mystery box and participate in an event where you will be giving a 3-5 minute TED-style talk on your research! This lecture style is ideal for ongoing or incomplete projects. Winner gets a prize.

Networking Lunch:
Another new addition to Lab Expo, the networking lunch is for undergrads to speak with graduate students about aspects of graduate life aside from research. Speak with undergraduate students and give them advice on what do do after graduation, and share your experience as a researcher! We will sit you at a table as a VIP and undergraduates will sit around your table and network with you.

Poster and Interactive Presentation:
Poster Session in Lab Expo 2020 serves to be a training ground for novice researchers, from undergraduate to graduate, who are starting their career path as a scientist. The relaxed setting would be the best chance for researchers like you to refine your presentation skills. If you seek for professional advice, we also have a feedback session which experienced faculty members/ graduate students would help on your skills. Lab Expo can also be the best place to recruit new undergraduate students or find your next collaboration opportunity!

You are welcomed to present your research with poster or other assistance (virtual reality, prototype, audio-visual aid, and so on). Taking place PC ballroom West, there will be two sessions available during the day of the event which you can choose either or both.
