Entering its eighth year, the National Integrative Research Conference is an annual Arts and Science conference. It attracts undergraduates and keynote speakers from universities across Canada and the US to McGill University in Montréal, QC to present their interdisciplinary research. This year's conference consists of oral and poster research presentations by students from McGill and other universities, keynotes, and a panel on Sustainability. To conclude proceedings the conference will have poster presentations and a wine and cheese in the evening for students to network with professors and speakers. Save the date: Friday, March 23. This year, the conference will be held at Carrefour Sherbrooke, and RVC.

Our Mission

The goal of our conference is to promote undergraduate research in interdisciplinary fields and provide a platform whereby students are able to present their own interdisciplinary work, engage in intellectual dialogue, and interact with other students and professors from Canada and the US. This conference will be an outstanding opportunity for all participants to be in an environment that fosters knowledge and creativity. We encourage students to transcend the conventional boundaries of art and science and pursue research in new and innovative ways.
