What is Apeiron?

Washburn's Apeiron is an annual forum celebrating student research. Undergraduate and graduate students participate in this conference-style setting with posters, oral presentations, and performance. The forum is dedicated to the idea that students are capable of work that knows no limits and transcends all boundaries.

Apeiron gets its name from a Greek word, coined by Anaximander of Mietus in the 6th Century B.C.E., meaning "infinite" or "boundless."
