Eighth annual Graduate Student Research Conference
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Call for Proposals IS CLOSED
DEADLINE: Monday, March 4, 2013
Plan to be part of the eighth annual celebration of graduate student research and scholarship. You have your choice in participating in one of the following ways:
• Give an oral presentation — Guidelines
The oral research panels are organized into general themes and run concurrently during the morning and afternoon. Each panel involves four to five student presentations. Submission requires 200-word abstract written for a non-specialist audience.
(PLEASE NOTE: We will do our best to accommodate any students who wish to present as a panel on a specific theme. Each panel will require four individual research presentations that tie into an overall theme. Students who would like to consider presenting as a panel are asked to contact Mike Plyley (email@example.com), program chair of the conference, with their ideas prior to submitting proposals.
• Display a poster — Guidelines
The poster session is typically held over the lunch break and poster presenters are required to be available at that time to discuss their research projects with audience members. Submission requires 200-word abstract written for a non-specialist audience.
• New this year — take the 3MT® challenge — See details
With a panel of judges listening and the clock running — three minutes and not a second more — you’ll have the chance to test your ability to talk about your research and why it matters in a way that will captivate and inform a panel of non-specialist judges.The competition is open to:
• students who are very far along in their Master’s or PhD thesis work (i.e. at the final stages of writing their thesis)
• students who recently defended but not yet graduated.
Submission requires 200-word abstract written for a non-specialist audience.
Youth University prizes
For the second consecutive year, Youth University will offer a research prize for oral and poster presentations on topics pertaining to child and adolescent research at the conference. Conference participants must identify their desire to be adjudicated for the prizes when submitting their conference Call for Proposals. Judging will take place the day of the conference.
