Graduate Studies and Research Conference to showcase best of UPEI graduate research

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

UPEI’s School of Graduate Studies will be hosting the annual UPEI Graduate Studies and Research Conference May 16 through 18. This will be the first time graduate students from all UPEI faculties will jointly participate in presenting their research at a university-wide event. 

“Graduate students drive the university’s research programs,” said Dr. Larry Hammell, dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies at UPEI. “This conference provides an important opportunity to appreciate their great work across a wide spectrum of research interests.”

These three days are a celebration of the accomplishments of UPEI’s graduate students and their research efforts. Over the course of the two days, graduate students will present their research orally. There will also be invited presentations, including the R.G. Thomson Lecture by Dr. George Gitau from University of Nairobi given immediately following the opening ceremonies.

Opening ceremonies will be 9:00 am, Wednesday, May 16. All are welcome to attend at no cost (please register here). Most activities will occur in AVC Lecture Theatre A and the McCain Foundation Learning Commons at AVC. For a full list of presentations, see the conference schedule.
