The University of Florida Black Graduate Student Organization pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Diversity Graduate Research Symposium on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019 in the Florida Gym.

The Diversity Graduate Research Symposium will include oral and poster presentations from graduate students at the University of Florida, as well as a keynote speaker addressing the importance of diversity in research. The event will be interdisciplinary encompassing biological sciences, social sciences, humanities, computer science, engineering, math, and physical sciences. The goal of this symposium is to showcase the outstanding quality and diversity of graduate-level research at the University of Florida, in addition to providing students with the opportunity to enhance their communication skills with those outside of their discipline. Therefore, we welcome any research in progress, completed or previously presented research. Presentations will be judged by post-doctoral trainees and faculty. Prizes will be awarded to presentation winners and there will also be a raffle for attendees. This event is open to everyone that registers.

Graduate students can submit original research abstracts (3000-character limit, ~500 words) by clicking the link below. The deadline to submit abstracts is Sunday, October 20th, 2019. Work presented at previous national/local conferences are allowed.

Registration deadline is October 23rd, 2019.
