The Effat Student Research Forum is an Effat conference, organized by the Research and Consultancy Institute (RCI) in cooperation with Student Affairs, Student Life and Effat Library.
This conference serves as a multi-disciplinary forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research and development projects undertaken by undergraduate and graduate students.
We invite students to submit their papers, posters/ demonstrations, showcases, or demos. A panel of academic reviewers will review each submission. Selected papers will be considered for publication in Effat Undergraduate Research Journal. Selected research work will also be nominated for publication in various peer reviewed academic international Journals (Scopus / ISI). For this purpose, students would be required to undertake at least 50% change to their papers.
The Program includes a wide range of interesting and useful activities designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information.
Students can present their research projects/capstones in 15 minutes time. It is expected that all papers will be delivered in approximately 10 minutes.
Completed or current research projects can be presented in the poster sessions during extended coffee and lunch breaks.
Project Showcases & Demonstrations:
Showcases and demonstrations of designs or prototyped products can be presented during extended coffee and lunch breaks.
