What Is Winchell?
The Annual Meeting & Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium prepares undergraduate students to enter science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields by providing a forum for students to showcase their scientific research, receive comments from professional scientists and peers, and network with professionals in the fields they aspire to enter.

There are four main components of the event: a keynote lecture, oral presentations, breakout sessions, and poster presentations. In 2018, the keynote address and oral presentations took place in the morning. Breakout sessions and poster sessions ran in the afternoon.
We strictly adhere to time and space limits (regarding oral and poster presentations, respectively). See: Guidelines for oral and poster presentations
