Graduate Research Conference (4/29)

The 33rd Annual Graduate Research Conference (GRC) will be held Friday, April 29, at the University Center, with breakout session rooms in M/P, Sondheim, the Seventh Floor of the Library and in the University Center itself.

The GRC keynote speaker is Ralph Semmel, director of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. Dr. Semmel earned his doctorate from UMBC, and it is an honor that he returns to campus for this exciting day of research.

There are over 125 graduate student oral and poster presentations submitted for the GRC, ranging from gerontology to molecular biology. Alumni and UMBC faculty serve as judges at the conference.

The day begins at 8 a.m. with continental breakfast and registration for participants and judges. Session I is 9-10:50 a.m., Session II is 11 a.m.-12:50 p.m.

The lunch, keynote speaker and short awards ceremony are 1-2:30 p.m. We are pleased to announce that, for the first time, there will be a Education Poster Session in the Library, 4-5 p.m., where more than 35 education graduate students will present their research.

Faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend the oral and poster presentations as well as the luncheon/keynote speaker. RSVP to gsa@umbc.edu by Thursday, April 28.

  1. Hi, I had originally unofficially agreed to consider being a judge in for the Graduate Research Conference, although nobody has officially contacted me to confirm. Please pass this note on to the right person, clarifying that I will NOT be able to serve as a judge this year. Sorry! Rick Bissell (EHS Dept).

  2. I was contacted earlier in the year, but no one has confirmed a time for me as of 4:30 on Thursday, so I am not planning to be there on Friday.
