Sessions begin at 9:00, 10:15, 1:45, and 3:15. The event's catered reception and interdisciplinary poster session starts at noon (brief remarks at 12:30).

About the Research Forum
The first Graduate Student Research Forum was held in April 2010 in response to requests from graduate students for more opportunities for interdisciplinary intellectual exchange and networking. The Graduate School is committed to providing ongoing opportunities for our graduate students to both share some of the incredible intellectual work going on at the University, and have the chance to engage with their peers’ research. Interdisciplinary, cross-unit forums like this are an ideal setting for learning, research collaboration, and professional development.

The Research Forum is an annual event open to the public, graduate students and faculty members, and other members of the UO community.
