Hello graduate students,
The GSA will be hosting its 7th annual multidisciplinary research conference – Meeting of the Minds – on Saturday March 16, 2013. As with previous years, registration is completely free and will include breakfast, lunch, a wine and cheese poster session, and a banquet in the evening. We will also be giving out cash prizes for outstanding presentations in a variety of categories.
We invite students from all disciplines and at all levels of study (undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral) to present their research, including research that is currently in progress, either as a poster or a 12-minute talk (pending peer review). See here for more details, including instructions for submitting an abstract. The abstract submission deadline is January 31, 2013.
