Hello Chemistry Graduate Students and Faculty,
The CGSA Spring Symposium has now been scheduled for Friday, May 13th, 2022. The date has been changed because we decided to expand the scope of the event and have the largest attendance we can get!
Here are a few important announcements and updates about the symposium:
1. Registration: Please see the link near the end of this email to register for the symposium. Graduate students and faculty, please complete the form by Friday, April 8th.
2. Poster abstracts are due on Friday, April 8th. Poster abstracts should include title, authors, and a brief description of the research (suggested length 150-250 words). The abstract can be uploaded at the registration link.
3. Poster awards: The Department of Chemistry is sponsoring poster awards for the CGSA symposium. Three poster prize winners will receive $500 each in travel funds, which can be used for attending and presenting a poster or talk at a conference by the end of 2023. Several faculty . A rubric will be shared with you by the registration deadline.
4. Presentations: A few selected abstracts may be considered for talks during the symposium. Please indicate during the registration process if you are interested in being considered for a talk. The talks are 25 minutes followed by 5 minutes of questions from the audience.
*ALL THESIS STUDENTS,* this symposium is an excellent opportunity to present your work, especially if you're graduating soon and have not yet had the opportunity to present your research to a broader research audience. We hope to see you present on May 13th!
We are all excited to get back to a more normal graduate experience and reconnect with our graduate community. Let's make this the best CGSA spring symposium yet! We look forward to seeing every student and faculty member there.
