Conferences & Workshops 2016-17
The 2017 Graduate Students Research Conference (17th annual) TBC
For more information on last year's conference 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.
