View the 2020 Graduate Research Conference Paper and Poster sessions.

The Graduate Research Conference offers an opportunity for graduate students to practice presenting data, public speaking, and communicating with others about theory and innovative research strategies.

10- to 12-minute paper presentations

Presenters can expect to develop their ideas from a class assignment, paper or research project into an interactive presentation. If desired, presenters may incorporate slides with graphs, pictures, text, etc., using tools like PowerPoint. Each presentation should last 10 to 12 minutes. There will be a question-and-answer period at the end of the paper presentation session.

Poster presentations

Poster presenters will be asked to display their ideas from a class assignment, paper or research project in a poster and explain their project to passersby. The poster session will last an hour and thirty minutes.
