2022-23 Art of Research Competition
Tuesday, April 25, 2023, 6-8 p.m.
Buffalo Museum of Science
Beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
RSVP to this form by April 18 to indicate if you plan to attend and need transportation.
When you get home after work/school today, you will be ready to unwind and relax. Will you sit down to a delicious Colgate meal? How about a bedtime snack of Lay’s WOW chips? When you are getting ready for bed, will you remove the Google glasses that you wore during the day? I am confident that your answers to these questions is no.
The products mentioned above failed in the marketplace. Why do some products fail, and others succeed? What does it take to create a successful product? As a former product manager for GE consumer electronic products, I have seen a lot of products come and go. I will walk through some famous (and not so famous) product failures, including one of mine.
Failed products are not a complete waste of time and money. They have valuable lessons that can teach us how to best avoid product failures in the future.
DATE: November 29, 2022 TIME: 9:30-10:50 a.m. LOCATION: Capen 108
This class session is open to ANY/ALL Honors College students. Please come join my class for this one off-session on Marketing & Brands

Calling all science-lovers:
Are you curious about what goes on in a R1 research lab? Do you want hands-on experience in the laboratory? Are you searching for a mentor?
Join the UBChemClub in hosting 12 of UB’s Department of Chemistry research faculty for an Undergraduate Research Expo on Feb. 10th at 6 PM in NSC 218. All majors are welcome to join us to hear about getting involved in undergraduate research, learn about projects available, and enjoy pizza and drinks. This is a wonderful opportunity to network within the Department of Chemistry and find out if undergraduate research is right for you. Respond at https://forms.gle/k62RVesnjQMFCw2g8 to informally RSVP.
The University at Buffalo, SUNY, is proud to hold its fourth annual Rustgi Undergraduate Conference on South Asia. We invite papers on the theme of “(Mis)information,” which may be interpreted broadly in its social or political sense. The echoes of misinformation ring in all our ears today as we interact with information endlessly. Regardless of whether it is inadvertent or purposeful, the spread of misinformation has affected how we communicate and process “truths” in our world. The 2021 Rustgi conference will feature a keynote lecture from novelist, essayist, and journalist Dr. Michael Muhammad Knight, Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Central Florida. As a scholar, Knight has explored misinformation by contending with prominent descriptions of Islam in media, dissecting concepts of religious othering both within and outside of the Muslim community. His works include The Taqwacores, Why I Am a Five Percenter, and Magic in Islam.
We welcome undergraduate participants studying South Asia from all disciplines to submit proposals, preferably but not necessarily working on any topic relating to the theme. Possible topics of discussion include:
- Censorship (of journalism and activist voices)
- Role of information in religious conflicts
- Digital literacy
- Institutions that diffuse information
- Determinants of beliefs arising from information
- Future of misinformation
- Ethics of information dissemination
This list of suggestions is by no means exhaustive. We encourage papers that explore sociopolitical issues, communities, or theories stemming from under-represented perspectives. We shall organize panels around presentations addressing similar issues that draw from various disciplinary perspectives, including the social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, management, humanities, fine arts, and others.
Please visit https://bit.ly/rustgisubmissions2022 to submit proposals.
The conference will be held on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, 2022. Student presenters should plan for 15-minute presentations. Each panel will include 30 minutes for discussion. Though the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may require the conference organizers to shift the conference online, we have every hope of holding the event in person.
Proposals, including 250-word abstracts and the contact information of a faculty supervisor, must be submitted via the online submissions portal (https://bit.ly/rustgisubmissions2022) by Sunday, February 20, 2022.
When submitting abstracts, applicants must affirm that they will be enrolled as undergraduate students at the time of the conference. Those in graduate programs or not currently enrolled in an undergraduate program will not be permitted to present. The organizers reserve the right to confirm student status with their advisor and home institution.
Funding and Accommodations
We are able to provide a limited number of presenters with a travel subvention of up to US$200. Accepted participants who attend in person will also be provided with shared hotel accommodations. The University at Buffalo cannot provide any additional assistance or guidance to international applicants seeking entry into the United States.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the conference.
