UROP International Research Projects

Course Programs and Leisure Activities UROP International consists of three components: a research project at one of RWTH Aachen's research institutes or labs is at the core. Additionally, students are offered a comprehensive accompanying program: an intensive German course and workshops on intercultural learning, scientific methods, and research practice to prepare them for their respective research project. Furthermore, our international guests participate in a number of leisure activities to gain a look at German history and culture and meet German and international students at RWTH. Regular get togethers, excursions in the region, institute visits, and much more, form the framework of the students' stay in Aachen.

ACM SIGMOD 2015 Undergraduate Research Poster Competition

Continuing the initiative of the 2008 SIGMOD Conference, we invite submissions to the Undergraduate Research Poster Competition.
Undergraduate students who have played a key role in a research project are invited to submit an abstract to this poster competition. Any project broadly related to data management is within the scope of the competition (for a list of sample areas of interest, see the ACM SIGMOD Call for Papers). 
Based on the quality of submissions, students may be invited to present posters that describe their research at the 2015 ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference http://www.sigmod2015.org. Invited students will be offered a partial travel stipend to help defray conference attendance costs (registration fee, travel, lodging, etc.). The amount of the travel stipend is to be determined. A "best poster" winner will be selected and announced at the SIGMOD 2015 awards session.
