SACNAS is a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists – from college students to professionals – to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in science.
USC’s Office of Diversity and Strategic Initiatives extends a warm invitation to present your research at the 2014 SACNAS National Conference. The 2014 SACNAS National Conference “Creativity, Vision, and Drive: Towards Full Representation in STEM” will take place in Los Angeles, CA, October 15-19, 2014. It will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center only two Metro stops north of the USC’s Campus.
This year’s conference is a fantastic networking opportunity for scientists at all levels to come together, engage with cutting edge scientific research, and to build a network of other Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists. Hundreds of undergraduates present their research every year at SACNAS and awards are given to the best poster and oral presentations in all fields. Students from all racial and ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to participate. In order to take advantage of this unique opportunity, please keep the following registration dates in mind:
