Conferences & Workshops 2016


April 1 & 2, 2016

Graduate Students Research Conference

OISE's 16th Annual Graduate Student Research Conference is an inclusive and accessible space for showcasing student inquires at all stages. It provides a rich platform for exchange of ideas across departments, disciplines, and programs. It os an event that gives graduate students the opportunity to share and discuss their original research contributions while gaining experience in a formal academci conference setting.

For more information, or to register please visit the GSRC website

The Graduate Student Research Conference is organized by students, for students, and I strongly encourage all of our graduate students to participate. It is a wonderful  opportunity to make your first conference presentation and share research findings in a friendly, supportive space. It provides an important forum for connecting students who may be interested in similar questions, and for learning about the tremendous diversity of research taking place within the Institute.  The Dean’s Office is pleased to support this very important annual event.
