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.

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.
