Registration for HSU's 2021 ideaFest Now Open

March 1, 2021


The Office of Research, HSU Library, and Marketing & Communications would like to invite you to participate in the 8th Annual HSU ideaFest! Historically, this event has hosted more than 400 students, faculty, and staff from HSU showcasing research, live performances, creative projects, and more!

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ideaFest Symposium will continue to be hosted online through a new virtual platform called Platform Q. Students, faculty, and staff can participate in ideaFest by disseminating & sharing their research & creative activities in the following ways: 


  • Digital Posters and Pre-Recorded Video Presentations (3-5 minutes) can be submitted. This includes video/image submissions of Visual & Performing Arts.
  • The online registration and project upload deadline is April 23, 2021 by 4:59 p.m. After registration closes, all participants and attendees will receive a link that will lead them directly to view the submitted posters and projects on Platform Q.
  • During the week of May 3-7th, Humboldt State University will highlight both live & pre-recorded examples of research & creative works.

If you or your students are interested in presenting, registration for ideaFest 2021 is now open! Click Here for more information or to sign up. This will be a great venue to display previously presented professional posters or multimedia presentations at this campus-wide research & creative activities symposium.
