Check out the USRA virtual poster session

Undergraduate scholars are ready to share their discoveries — and their summer experiences — at the 2021 Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) virtual poster session, beginning Monday, Nov. 15.

The annual poster session will be held on Microsoft Teams Nov.  15-19. McMaster community members can “drop by” any time during the week to view posters created by USRA presenters.

Visitors to the digital session can explore research on various topics, from youth and social media during the pandemic, to the Spotify algorithm and genre diversity, to using eye-tracking technology to examine indicators of autism.

How to attend

There are a couple of ways to connect with undergraduate scholars at the poster session:

  • “In person”: Each student will be available for an hour at a scheduled time. During that hour, visitors will be able to communicate directly with the  student in a variety of ways — by video, audio or live chat. The “live” schedule is available at this link.
  • Drop-in: The Team will be open to all members of the McMaster community. Visitors can review digital posters and leave questions, comments and words of encouragement for USRA presenters throughout the week.

Visit the 2021 USRA Virtual Poster Session live on Microsoft Teams, Nov. 15-19.

The USRA Virtual Poster Session is coordinated by the School of Graduate Studies.
