Conferences and Symposia

Scientific Conferences

One of the perks of being a graduate student is attending conferences, both regional and international. These are excellent platforms to share your own work with other students and researchers while getting a taste of what other research is being done outside of your institution. Conferences and meetings also provide ideal opportunities to network. Below are a few of the major conferences that are held annually.
