RE:     Call for Abstracts for 2013 Graduate Student Research Day (October 29)

The I-Cubed Graduate Student Advisory Council and the Graduate School invite all graduate students and undergraduate students (participating in research activities) to present their posters at the 2013 Graduate Student Research Day. The conference will be held at the Reitz Union on Tuesday October 29, 2013.

This year's Graduate Student Research Day is themed around MENTORING & LEADERSHIP. The event will offer an array of workshops on three different tracks: Professional Development, Mentoring and 3-minute Thesis/Dissertation Presentation.

This interdisciplinary conference features a Poster Contest that provides students across all fields the opportunity to showcase their research in a collegiate environment and to network with other students/researchers on campus. The event is also open to faculty, postdoctoral fellows/associates, and staff. A team of faculty, staff, community members, and graduate students will judge the posters during the Poster Session, and monetary awards will be given to the highest-scoring posters. The deadline to register for the poster contest is September 27th.
