Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC) 2017

Hi UTM Grads,

A reminder that our annual Graduate Research Colloquium is fast approaching. This year, the GRC will be on May 2nd and May 3rd.

The UTM Graduate Research Colloquium aims to highlight graduate student research across our campus. This special two-day event will provide the opportunity for graduate students to showcase their work to fellow graduate students, post-docs, and faculty from all graduate departments. The Colloquium will also provide a fantastic opportunity to learn about the most exciting graduate research taking place at UTM. This event is also open to St. George students that have a supervisor who has a continuing appointment at UTM.

The GRC includes poster (May 2nd) and oral presentations (May 3rd). If you want to sign up for a poster or an oral presentation, the deadline to do so is 5:00 pm on Wednesday, 19th April. You can register here.

You can register to attend the GRC (without any presentations) here.

Please spread the word! Thanks for helping us celebrate graduate research at UTM.
