3rd Annual WISC Graduate Research Symposium

Speaking Confidently in the Face of Uncertainty

April 19th 2019


The Fourth Annual WISC Graduate Research Symposium is here! We will bring graduate students from across the STEM disciplines together for a day of science talks, workshops, poster presentations, and networking. The theme of this year’s event is Speaking Confidently in the Face of Uncertainty, as we believe it is important to empower people of all gender identities to speak boldly about their science. Save the date for April 19th 2019, and check back regularly for updates about the event!

The WISC Graduate Research Symposium (WGRS) is a multi-disciplinary research conference that aims to highlight and celebrate emerging research conducted by women graduate students in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The format of the symposium is designed to encourage discussion across an array of STEM disciplines by sharing the details of current research and placing them in a broader context, making connections and engaging in research networking.

Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to present their scientific papers and posters.  WGRS faculty will award graduate students with awards for top presentations.
