A global undergraduate

STEM Conference

EDGE welcomes your from all areas of STEM

About Us

EDGE is a global non-profit undergraduate conference, which welcomes submissions of student research from all areas of STEM. The overarching aim of this conference is to give students a platform where they are able to showcase their original research in different STEM fields, encourage dialogue, and thereby promote the practice of STEM research more generally. Furthermore, by inviting established researchers in different fields as keynote speakers, we look to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the value and inner workings of academia, and grow their academic network.

This conference has no registration fee. Meanwhile, we will have rewards for three outstanding researchers:


Best Paper Award

This award is given to the student whose paper submission demonstrates the highest level of academic rigor and originality. Our focus is here not only on the content of the research but also the quality of writing.


Best Presentation Award

This award is given to the student whose conference presentation. Beyond the content of the student’s research, we are here also looking for rhetorical excellence.


Young Researcher Award

This award is given to the student whose overall work demonstrates exceptional academic potential—as a writer, presenter, and a thinker.
