The GSC is now accepting abstracts for 2018 Tufts Graduate Student Research Symposium! The event will take place on Friday March 2, 2018 from 12pm-7pm and will include a keynote speaker and reception. Abstracts of up to 2000 characters can be submitted online and are due by Friday, February 9 at 11:59pm. Every year the Tufts Graduate Student Council organizes the Graduate Student Research Symposium as an opportunity for graduate students to present their research to a diverse audience across disciplines in a concise way. Sessions of traditional 15-minute talks, fast 3-minute talks, and a poster session give graduate students different settings in which to share their work. The presenters are judged on clarity, presentation, design, and effectiveness in communicating to a broad audience and prizes of up to $100 are awarded in each category for the top three presentations. Our goal is to continue to give graduate students an avenue to share their research, practice presentation skills, and receive valuable feedback.  Please contact Jared Pence at gsc-academic@tufts.edu with any questions.
