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.

The symposium will feature an invited keynote speaker and a selection of oral paper and scientific poster presentations. Faculty will award graduate students with awards for top presentations. The symposium will also feature a lunchtime panel discussion.

WGRS faculty will award graduate students with awards for the top presentations.

Graduate students from any STEM field who identify as women are encouraged to submit an abstract here by March 18th, 2018 (updated as of March 4, 2018).
