Welcome to the third annual Cornell Undergraduate Psychology (CUP) Conference!  The conference is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to experience a professional conference in the field, to share and present their work, and to meet other students and learn about the various kinds of exciting, cutting-edge work being conducted here at Cornell.

The conference will be held Friday, May 8, 2020 at Clark Hall.


To be eligible to present, you must be enrolled as an undergraduate student.

We are looking for research in psychological science , conducted by undergraduate students (not just Psych majors or minors). Students who are majors or minors in Psychology, Human Development, Information Science, Cognitive Science, Sociology, Economics, ILR, and Communications are encouraged to apply and attend.


You can apply to present either a poster or a short oral presentation (~10 minutes).  The research must have been conducted with faculty or graduate students at Cornell.  You will be asked to indicate whether you would prefer a poster or talk format, and whether you would be willing to do either.  Given space considerations, some people presenting a talk may be asked to present a poster instead.  

Conference description:

The conference will consist of a series of oral presentations as well as an ongoing poster session. More details on the exact format of the conference will be available soon.

A light breakfast and a full lunch will be served.

There is no fee for presenting or attending.
