    SACES 2022 Conference Graduate Student Research Presentations

    The SACES Graduate Student Committee (GSC) is excited to welcome students at the SACES conference in Baltimore! The GSC is happy to announce that we will be hosting a Graduate Student 3 Minute Thesis event at the upcoming conference on Friday, November 4th from 3:00pm-4:30pm. The purpose of this event is to present students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills, network and connect with other students who may have similar research interests, and add to their presentation section on their CV. This is an event that the GSC previously hosted at the SACES Graduate Students Lounge at the ACES 2021 conference, and due to the success of that event and our desire to meet the conference needs of students, we have decided to bring to the SACES 2022 conference in Baltimore. Selected students (from any region) are welcome to apply to present their research interest(s) for 3 minutes (yes, only 3, it's time to practice for those job talks!) aided by a one-slide PowerPoint presentation. Through a peer-review process, the SACES GSC will select as many submissions as possible. Selections will be based on the quality of the applicant's responses and rationale for presentation need. Preference will be given to students who are presenting less than twice at the SACES conference. Submissions are due September 19th and selected participants will be notified of acceptance by October 3rd.

    You can find the submission form here.

    The SACES GSC looks forward to reading your submissions! If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to email Lauren Flynn at grad.rep@saces.org!
