Call for Nominations for 2016 Graduate Research Symposium

It’s that time of the year again! The 2016 11th NCSU Graduate Research Symposium is seeking nominations. The symposium will be held from 1:00 to 5:30pm at McKimmon Center on Wednesday, March 23, 2016. All presentations will be in poster format and must follow certain guidelines:

1) Posters must be a maximum of 4′ high x 6′ wide. Pushpins will be provided.
2) Students may use posters that they have already presented at another conference, if they choose to do so.
3) The UGSA and Graduate School do not have funds available to cover poster printing costs. Both the production of the poster and associated costs are the responsibility of the presenters.
For more guidelines, please refer to www.ncsu.edu/grad/research/symposium.html.
Adriana is now receiving nominations for the Eleventh Annual Graduate Student Research Symposium (see call below). Faculty are encouraged to nominate PhD students who are engaged in exceptional and interesting research to showcase their work (in poster form) at the symposium in March 2016. Students are also encouraged to self nominate.

In order to nominate, please send Adriana the name of the PhD student, the title and abstract of the research project, and a brief (2-3 sentences) statement about the quality/importance of the work.

Note the deadline for nomination is December 02, 2015.  If more than the allocated nominations are received, the CRDM committee will review them to make decisions on how to move forward.

Last year over 200 posters from more than 60 graduate programs were presented and our very own CRDMers Johanne Laboy was awarded first place and Sarah Evans was awarded third place in the Humanities category in 2015. You can ask Sarah about her experience!
