Undergraduate research plays an important role in attracting our best undergraduates to continue towards graduate education in the science and engineering fields. Publishing research in a professional venue is part of the training for future researchers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides support for undergraduate research within the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. The goal of this workshop is to provide a venue for students to published their research done as part of the REU program.
The workshop seeks original submissions in research areas that are currently funded by the NSF's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). The key requirement for this workshop is that at least one author for each submission must be an undergraduate student funded as part of the NSF REU program, either as an REU supplement or REU Site.
REUNS would like to encourage REU students and undergraduate students to participate in REUNS workshop by funding the travel costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference. We expect to fund approximately 12 to 15 travel grants, averaging 800USD to 1000USD each for domestic travel, based on availability of funds.
These travel grants are provided by the generous contributions from the National Science Foundation.
