About the Conference: The conference consists entirely of student presentations to be judged by professionals and faculty members for providing constructive feedback to students in regard to their research presentation skills. Student activities promote interaction among students of all disciplines. The conference includes two major lectures from outside speakers. All SWC activities take place in the French Lounge, room 270 of the Student Union.
