Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR)

November 19, 2022


SCCUR is a one-day conference held each November on the campus of a college or university in the greater Los Angeles area.  This year it will be hosted by Pepperdine University. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduates in the region, thereby recognizing excellence in undergraduate achievement. SCCUR aims to replicate professional and scholarly meetings; many undergraduate scholars often participate in SCCUR as a "first conference" experience, going on to present their work at national professional meetings. SCCUR showcases the work of undergraduate students across all disciplines and serves as a friendly, welcoming venue for undergraduates to present their scholarly and/or creative work in a poster session, 15-minute oral presentation, or exhibition/performance.
