SURC East 2017 will be hosted at Suffolk County Community College on Friday, 21 April; and SURC West 2017 will be hosted by SUNY Fredonia on Saturday, 22 April.

Student presentations are welcome from across all fields represented by SUNY Oneonta’s five schools. Information on how to participate is available here. Students interested in presenting must submit abstracts on-line by February 17, 2017, and will be notified of the results in early March. The deadline to register for the conference is March 3.

Participants can choose to present at either SURC East on April 21 or SURC West on April 22. Registration and travel arrangements will be coordinated through the GDO.
