To everyone at the OISE community:
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those who submitted their proposals to present at the 2020 OISE Graduate Students Research Conference. Even though we are unable to proceed with the conference on the originally scheduled dates of April 4-5, 2020, we would still like to support the exchange of ideas to the extent possible. That is why we decided to publish this book of abstracts to showcase all the accepted proposals for the conference. Where possible, we have also included email addresses for the authors. We encourage you to read these abstracts and reach out to the authors whose research interests you.
With over 100 submissions, the task of reviewing all the submissions was admirably carried out by our team of volunteer reviewers, patiently coordinated by Annie Luk. In addition to the peer reviews completed by each of those who submitted their proposals, we were also fortunate enough to have the support from a group of volunteer reviewers who did multiple reviews. We thank you!
We also want to express our thanks to the volunteer coordinators: Charlotte Hopkins (registration), Asia Majeed (logistics), Annie Luk (programming), Latifa Soliman (communications) and You Zhang (publications).
Until we see you all at a later date, we wish you and your loved ones good health.

 We are only able to print the abstracts from authors who have given us written permission by May 31, 2020.
