The deadline to submit proposals has been extended to this Friday, November 20.
This is your personal invitation to submit a poster proposal for the
Fourth Annual Graduate Student Research Poster Session
Thursday, January 28th, 2010
Graduate Student Presentations 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Stern Student Ballroom
As a graduate student who has worked on or is currently working on a research or creative project, you are encouraged to submit and present a poster at the Fourth Annual Graduate Research Poster Session. We are inviting you to participate because you were accepted and have received a Graduate Student Research or Presentation Grant to support your research within the past year.
Poster session process and details can be found on our website under the link to research at http://gradschool.cofc.edu/currentstudents/research/research.php We have examples of past posters for reference in case you are unfamiliar with poster formats. Please get in touch with our office for assistance if you need it when your poster proposal is accepted. We will be sending out more detailed information later to all students whose proposals have been accepted.
We would like your program to be represented and will display as many posters as possible. In the past all students who submitted poster proposals were able to present their posters and research or creative project, so it is a good idea to begin working on the poster early.
