Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium!

Rice University's schools of Natural Sciences and Engineering want to make sure that when talented science and engineering undergraduates in the US are deciding where to apply for graduate school, we are on their radar, so to speak.  To that end, we are hosting our second annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium.  To quote the webpage,
The Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS) is a forum for undergraduate researchers to present original research discoveries.... GCURS fosters intercollegiate interactions among students and faculty who share a passion for undergraduate research. We expect several hundred speakers from about half of the states. The event also offers a friendly and supportive environment to students who would be giving their first formal research presentation, and faculty will provide written constructive feedback.
The registration deadline is Sept. 29.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided on Saturday, and travel expenses for students (hotel, mileage, airfare if preapproved) will be covered by Rice's Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.  Please pass this along - it's a fun time.  If you want more details and contact information either for our department's role or the meeting as a whole, please let me know.
