Welcome to the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference (FURC). FURC is one of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary research conferences highlighting the exceptional work that students undertake as undergraduates. This annual event is open to all undergraduate academic and creative scholars in the state of Florida. Every year, the conference is hosted at a different college or university in the state, and this year Azul is thrilled to host this year's biggest geek fest in Florida. FURC combines undergraduate research presentations with professional development workshop, creating an environment where participating students benefit from both sharing results of their scholarly work as well as learning from peers and these workshops. 

We at Florida Gulf Coast University are so proud to host the 10th annual conference. We are also happy that you are interested in making the event that much more impactful by facilitating one of the professional development workshops. Looking forward to seeing you in Southwest Florida this coming February!
