The Eastern Colleges Science Conference (ECSC) is an association of primarily undergraduate colleges and universities that provides a forum for undergraduate students in science and engineering to present their research. The main function of the organization is to stimulate interest in undergraduate research in the sciences and related fields, and to provide a lively forum for the presentation of research papers.
Students and their advisors may attend; and students may present their research findings in platform or poster presentations, or as full-length papers. In recent years, student awards have been given for presentations in each of the modes. The conference is held each spring.
