Welcome to the Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR), hosted this year by the University of California, Irvine, on Saturday, November 22, 2003!

SCCUR spotlights multidisciplinary faculty-mentored undergraduate research or creative achievement from many types of institutions in the Southern California region and fosters appreciation and the important role these activities play as an integral component of undergraduate education.

Through its annual conference, SCCUR celebrates the research, scholarship, and creative activities carried out by undergraduate students. Students in all disciplines—the arts, humanities, sciences, and engineering—present their faculty-mentored projects to audiences of peers, faculty and administrators through performance, oral and poster presentations, or displays.

SCCUR 2005 will be held at UC Riverside.
