Students involved in research can present their work at the Research in the Capitol event (RIC), held March 25, 2010 at the Statehouse in Des Moines, Iowa. This conference is co-hosted by the Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates, the University of Iowa, University of Northern Iowa and Iowa State University. Twenty students from each University present their research to state legistlators and statehouse visitors. The event is open to all students from all disciplines.

Research in the Capitol allows students to highlight what they have accomplished, share their work with others, and gain presentation experience. Students present their work in a poster format, which is a common format used at professional meetings and provides an open forum for discussion. Please see the ICRU website under presentation resources section for "How to make a poster." In addition, the Research Ambassadors are hosting a "How to make a Professional Poster" session on later in the spring semester. See the ICRU website for details.

Decisions about applications will be made after February 17, 2010 and applicants will be notified of the decisions via email. After submissions have been accepted, presenters will be listed in the following categories listed below. Please check back to see the updated schedule and list of presenters.

Before submitting a poster for Research in the Capitol (RIC), please visit the RIC page to obtain necessary information about the event. Then click the Submit Poster link in the sidebar, create an account, and follow the instructions. In addition, the ICRU website is a great first step toward answering any questions you may have.
