9th Annual Graduate Forum Proposal Applications Now Open!
The 9th Annual Grad Forum will take place on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 9:30 to 4:00 in the EMU. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposal to present their work in one of three formats: Poster, Three-Minute Thesis, or Panel Presentation. The submission deadline is Thursday, March 15, 2018 by 1 p.m.
The Grad Forum provides an excellent professional development opportunity for graduate students to share their research with a broad audience of faculty, other graduate students, undergraduates, and members of the larger community. It’s also a great way to make interdisciplinary connections — and compete to win up to $500!
Graduate students can participate in one of three ways:
- Poster Submissions: Research posters concisely summarize research and provide a starting place for discussion. Posters are typically a combination of brief text with tables, graphs, and/or pictures. At the Graduate Student Research Forum, researchers will stand by their posters to discuss and answer questions about their research.
- Three-Minute Thesis Submissions: The Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition gives students no more than 3 minutes – and one slide – to present their research. This cultivates students’ capacity to effectively explain their research concisely in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
- Panel Presentation Submissions: Panels are comprised of talks by three to five graduate students (total presentation time is 1 hour). At least two different degree programs must be represented for the panel to be competitive for prizes (although we encourage you to indulge your interdisciplinary desires to the maximum extent!), and the talks should share a common theme or topic.
Deadline for all Grad Forum 2018 submissions: Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 1 pm.
