Interdisciplinary Graduate and Professional Student Symposium

The Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate and Professional Student Symposium (IGPS) is an opportunity for graduate and professional students to share their research, creative, and scholarly work with each other, the UC Davis campus, and the wider community. Students from every professional school and academic college give short talks, present posters, show artistic displays or performances, and participate in student-organized sessions to highlight their work. This year's IGPS will be held April 2-April 3, 2015 at the UC Davis Conference Center. Additionally, the best participants in each category will receive prizes for their excellence.

Students should present the significance and fundamental points of their work at UC Davis in a clear, distinct, and interesting manner. Presentations should be prepared for a diverse audience comprised of students, faculty, and community members. The Dean of Graduate Studies will award a grand prize of $1000, in addition to an all expense paid trip (travel & hotel) to the UC wide competition in the Bay Area!
