14th Annual Chemistry Graduate Student

Research Symposium

About the Conference

The 14th annual Chemistry Graduate Student Symposium will being held, Tuesday, June 2, 2015, in the Kenneth H. Keller Hall on the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus. The symposium primarily consists of research presentations by third-year graduate students in the chemistry doctorate program. Presentations will take place in four concurrent sessions and be 20 minutes in length with an additional 5 minutes reserved for discussion. All presentations will be formally assessed by a committee of faculty members and distinguished UMN alumni. Through a generous donation to the department, travel awards will be presented to those individuals judged to have given the best seminar in each of the four sessions. Written feedback will also be provided to all presenters.

It is the intent of the faculty that full attendance by all departmental faculty and students will be a high priority. We anticipate a full day of lectures interspersed by sponsored coffee breaks and lunch.
