UW Graduate Student Symposium Set for April 6-7
March 31, 2009 — The seventh annual University of Wyoming Graduate Student Symposium, featuring the research findings and works in progress of some 230 UW graduate students, will be Monday, April 6-Tuesday, April 7 on the second floor of the Wyoming Union.
Concurrent oral presentations will be delivered from 9 a.m.-noon and 2:20-5 p.m. both days. Poster sessions are from 3-5 p.m. each day. The symposium is free and open to the public.
"The Graduate Student Symposium presents a dynamic opportunity for students to present their scholarly results in a professional venue," says Don Roth, dean of the UW Graduate School. "By presenting their work at various stages of their research, they gain valuable experience. It also provides the UW community an opportunity to learn first-hand about the outstanding contributions of our graduate students."
The symposium will also feature research by students from the UW School of Energy Resources (SER), which provides undergraduate and graduate education, conducts research on existing and emerging energy resources and disseminates scientific, engineering and economic information to support Wyoming's near- and long-term energy future.
This is the second consecutive year that SER students have presented at the symposium.
