The Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an undergraduate research conference that takes place each November at a college or university in the Los Angeles area.

The Deadline for Submission of ABSTRACTS will be sometime in October. Students should discuss their presentation with their research mentor, and then go to the SCCUR website to submit an abstract. Please be sure to read the instructions carefully before submitting your abstract. After you are notified that your abstract is accepted, you will need to register for the conference.
