We are happy to announce that the Local Section Activities Committee has approved funding for the first annual ECI Undergrad Research Conference! In general, we will have two poster sessions arranged by topic, a lunch/networking break at noon, and an awards ceremony at the end. Local industry professionals and professors/staff from UIUC will be invited to judge the posters and give awards in several categories. Applications will open over the summer and the conference will be held in early November Stay tuned for more information.
