I2S Student Research Symposium (ISRS)
The I2S Student Organization (ISO) is planning their inaugural I2S Student Research Symposium (ISRS). ISRS is an opportunity for graduate students to share their research and ideas with other graduate students and faculty members. Graduate students from all academic backgrounds are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentations of work they have recently published, are in the process of having published, or are works-in-progress. Submission deadline: February 17th.
