Cognitive Science Undergraduate Research Day 2023

The 2023 Cognitive Science Undergraduate Research Day will take place on April 13, 2023. Students recently enrolled in a COGS research course will be giving poster presentations of their work. This is a great opportunity for Cognitive Science undergraduates to share their research, and also for lower year students to see the types of research they might wish to complete themselves.

Come join us for a slice of pizza and the chance for everyone to connect and exchange in person!

Date: Thursday, April 13, 2023

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Location: 4th floor of the McGill College 2001 building

*Please note: elevators will not be accessible to anyone without a fob as of 7:00 p.m. All visitors must arrive before 7:00 p.m.


Are you a current student enrolled in a COGS research course this year? Or have you completed CogSci research in another term?  Would you like to be one of the student presenters at this event?

Please complete the registration form by April 2nd to sign up.
