Special Symposium 1:

2021 National Symposium for NSF REU Research in Data Science, Systems, and Security (REU 2021 Symposium)

One day during December 15-18, 2021, Orlando, FL, USA

Undergraduate research plays an important role in attracting our best undergraduates to continue towards graduate education in the science and engineering fields. Publishing research in a professional venue is part of the training for future researchers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides support for undergraduate research within the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. The goal of this Symposium is to provide a venue for students to publish their research done as part of the REU program. The symposium seeks original submissions in research areas that are currently funded by the NSF’s directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) or other related directorates. The same REU Symposium has been held in the IEEE Big Data 2018 conference and the IEEE Big Data 2019 conference. The key requirement for this Symposium is that the submission’s lead author must be an undergraduate student funded as part of the NSF REU program, either as an REU supplement or REU Site.
