Description: Undergraduate students conducting faculty-mentored research at a San Diego County institution of higher learning will have the opportunity to present their findings this summer to peers, professors and the general public at the annual Summer Research Conference held at the University of California, San Diego on August 14. This year's event will feature more than 240 students from colleges around the region, as well as eight University of California campuses, two dozen universities across the U.S. and several visiting international students.

Research projects cover all academic fields; this year’s topics include learning how risk-taking influences attractiveness, improving nanolasers for optical communication devices, using cyanobacteria as a source of biofuels, examining physiological interactions between humans and robots and more.

Hosted by UC San Diego Academic Enrichment Programs the annual conference is designed to help students strengthen their presentation skills and form networks with other scholars in their field. The Summer Research Conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 14 in the Price Center and is open to the campus and local community. In partnership with UC San Diego University Centers, the program will include 35 breakout sessions in 17 rooms throughout the day. Panels will be grouped by topics, and each student presenter will have 15 minutes to share their research, followed by a short question-and-answer period.
