Why attend the UIC Research Symposium?

Nearly all past attendees have said that the Symposium is the best conference they attend throughout the year. With attendance of about 50 participants, the meeting creates a friendly atmosphere with interaction among all in attendance. We encourage early stage research. Here is what some have said:
