An important dimension of scholarly work is the need to share results with peers, for their review and edification. The Kalman Research Symposium is an important annual event in our University's life for this reason, as it provides a venue for the broad spectrum of scholarly endeavors taking place on our campus. Held each spring, the Symposium is open to all Bucknell students (undergraduate and graduate levels) in all disciplines who wish to make a presentation on a completed or ongoing research project or Honors Thesis undertaken by a Bucknell student and faculty member.

2018 Symposium

Join us on Saturday, March 24 from 1:30 ‐ 3:30 p.m., in the Academic West building on Bucknell's campus for the 17th annual Kalman Research Symposium.

Who Can Participate?

The Symposium is open to all Bucknell students (undergraduate and graduate levels) in all disciplines who wish to make a presentation on a completed or ongoing research project or Honors Thesis undertaken by a Bucknell student and faculty member. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend the Symposium to interact with the presenting scholars and to learn more about their projects.

Types of Presentations

Presentations may be made in one of two venues: a poster session, in which the students present a graphic representation of their work, or a short oral presentation.

Trustee Emeritus Ernest Kalman

This symposium is named in honor of Trustee Emeritus Ernest Kalman, who graduated from Bucknell in 1956. In addition to his service as a University trustee, Ernie's generosity to his alma mater has taken many forms, one of which was a significant gift in support of undergraduate research.
