Graduate Student Research Symposium

Thursday, March 16, 2017
5:00–7:00 p.m.
Harker ISE Laboratory

Planned by students for students, the symposium will include both oral presentations and a poster session with a reception. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best posters. 

We invite you to submit an abstract for DENIN’s 2nd Symposium for graduate student researchers! 

The symposium will begin with oral presentations from 5:00-6:00 p.m. and then convene for a poster session and reception from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best posters!

The goal of the symposium is to bring together students who are carrying out environmentally relevant research and provide them an opportunity to network with their peers and learn about other environmentally focused research taking place throughout the University.

Anyone is encouraged to attend the symposium as a guest, but presenters are limited to graduate students conducting research that aligns with the DENIN mission to "integrate environmental science, engineering, and policy in order to provide solutions and strategies that address environmental challenges." Exceptions will be made for advanced undergraduate students working toward an undergraduate thesis.

If you are interested in presenting a 5-minute talk, 15-minute talk, or poster, please complete this online registration form. Registration will be open until 5:00 p.m. on February 17. Presenters should be prepared with the title of their presentation and a 300-word abstract prior to registering.
