About Grad Expo
The Grad Expo is an all day event where Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences graduate students from a variety of disciplines present papers and posters to their fellow students, faculty, and other members of the Pitt community. This event provides the opportunity for graduate students to gain experience in presenting their research as well as fostering interdisciplinary communication amongst the departments and programs within the School of Arts and Sciences. It is an opportunity for students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to be exposed to practices and concepts which, while possibly foreign to their field, might nevertheless enrich their work and certainly their academic experience at The University of Pittsburgh.
The abstract submission form is available at http://tinyurl.com/pittgradexpo2014 and will remain open until Friday, January 24, 2014. Late submissions will not be accepted! Outstanding presenters in each category will receive a prize stipend to be used for conference travel or the purchase of research materials.
