About the Symposium
Polygence's Symposium of Rising Scholars is an bi-annual academic conference where students present and share their research with their peers and experts.
Students have a choice of presentation type, and can present their work as either a conference talk or an elevator pitch. Students can also choose to present live at the Symposium, or asynchronously.
Our most recent Symposium on Saturday, September 24th 2022 featured nearly 200 students presenting live, over 60 students presenting asynchronously, and over 500 audience members.
