The Undergraduate Computer Science Research Symposium (UCORE) offers undergraduate students at McGill University who have been involved in summer research the opportunity to submit and present their research. This allows students to learn about the breadth of computer science research and share their accomplishments with a wider audience. UCORE usually takes place during the last week before the semester starts. The program committee will select the best summer research project presented by an undergraduate student together with 2 runner ups. 4-5 projects will be nomintated to be presented as posters at the Undergraduate Research Symposium of the Faculty of Science in Fall.

This year we ask interested students to submit an abstract and title by 18 Aug. A program committee will then select 12 - 14 abstracts to be presented at the symposium on 29 August. This follows the model of the ACM student research competition (http://src.acm.org/submissions.html) and many other workshops in computer science.
