The 24th Annual Student Conference

Monday, April 16 - Thursday, April 19, 2018
Bayou Building
University of Houston-Clear Lake
2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, TX 77058

The public is most welcome to attend any or all sessions at no cost, volunteer and evaluate presentations (depending on expertise and availability).

The Conference is an affordable Student Showcase where students from any college/university present original work (any discipline) in a variety of formats.

First-time student presenters, at both undergraduate and graduate levels, are strongly encouraged.

Thank You


We rely on the steadfast assistance and support from many individuals, departments, and groups in UHCL, including:

Authors and Faculty Sponsors

With over 200 presentations, we applaud the authors, co-authors and their faculty sponsors who participated in oral presentations, roundtables, symposiums and special events. Some  presentations were individual efforts, while others included multiple participants.


Evaluators have subject matter expertise. They volunteer their time to provide feedback to students whose presentations are within their area of expertise.
