Graduate Students' Research Conference

Graduate Students' Research Conference

 

The conference is a public event and all students (graduate and undergraduate), staff and faculty, members of the community, as well as high school students who are considering University career choices will be invited to view the posters and listen to the oral presentations. There is no cost associated with community participation in this event.

This conference is unique because it is a student-organized, student-focused, conference for communicating student research to the community. It provides an affordable option for local students to improve their curriculum vitae and a chance for everyone to keep on top of the world-class research being done here at the University of Regina and neighbouring Universities. The conference planners hope that resounding support and attendance from the University of Regina and the community will help to make the conference a National destination for student research over the next few years.
