Important Announcement

After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, RCC 2020 has been cancelled. This difficult decision came at a time of universal uncertainty as the peak of the pandemic coincided with the planned event back in April 2020. We take the safety and health of AUC community seriously. After close consultation with RCC stakeholders, we have made the decision to hold the event virtually. RCC 2021 is scheduled to take place from March 28 to April 1, 2021. We remain excited to host you "online". Your last year’s registration will automatically be applied to RCC 2021. Additionally, some activities will be open for new submissions. Stay tuned for updates. We are working hard to finalize the details and will share more information about our event in the coming weeks.

Research and Creativity Convention 2021

March 28 - April 1, 2021

AUC Research and Creativity Convention is a collective event that brings together diverse research, design, entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity activities that have demonstrated growth and success over the years. It aims to enhance knowledge-sharing, interdisciplinary research collaboration, and projects of community or economic value. It is an event that highlights AUC’s strategic priorities, strengthens research capacity, invigorates campus creativity, and explores critical regional and global issues.

AUC faculty and students, both graduate and undergraduate, showcase and share original research and creativity outcomes in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, business, and the arts. They demonstrate the breadth and depth of the institution’s research mission. The AUC Research and Creativity Convention is a celebration of excellence in university research, entrepreneurship, and creative achievement.
