Peer Beyond Graduate Research Symposium
4th Annual Peer Beyond Graduate Research Symposium
Innovation Through Collaboration January 28 – 30, 2020 | Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary
The Peer Beyond Graduate Research Symposium offers graduate students the unique opportunity to present their innovative research in a multi-disciplinary conference. This year’s theme, Innovation through Collaboration, celebrates the shared success of establishing new innovations and connections through collaborative research. Collaborations may take the form of collaborative partnerships, allowing for ground-breaking technological advancements, or collaborative work through the incorporation of different research methods. Opportunities to participate in cutting-edge workshops on the conference theme will also be offered to help student professional development. Hosted by the Graduate Students’ Association, this conference is intended to showcase the exciting research conducted at the University of Calgary and to cultivate interdisciplinary collaborations within the graduate community.
Any graduate student interested in sharing their research, networking with like-minded individuals and/or discovering collaboration opportunities is encouraged to submit an abstract or sign-up to participate in the day’s events. Undergraduates, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend. Registration for the conference is free.

Each presenter will have approximately 12 minutes to speak and an additional 3 minutes for questions. Please remember that this is a multi-disciplinary conference, so keep jargon to a minimum and try to make presentations accessible for all.
Each presenter will have only 5 minutes to present their research, and an additional 5 minutes for feedback and questions. This is a great opportunity to practice for 3-Minute Thesis, as members from My Grad Skills will be present to evaluate the talks and provide feedback.
