Submit an Abstract for the
2016 Graduate Research Conference!

Each year, the AU Graduate Students’ Association and Faculty of Graduate Studies holds a Research Conference for graduate students to present their research projects.

This year, UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS are also invited to submit their research for the 2016 Research Conference!

Presentations can be virtual or in-person, and can be a poster or a paper. If you are interested in presenting your research project for the 2016 Research Conference, you must submit an abstract that outlines your proposed presentation. The abstract should be no more than 250 words in a Word document.

The deadline to submit an abstract is June 30.
