leave a comment »

The Graduate School is pleased to announce that the 2010 Scholarly Forum will be held on March 9-10 in the Memorial Union. The Scholarly Forum is a two-day academic event showcasing the research and creative scholarship of graduate students and faculty from all corners of our UND campus.

This year, more than 50 oral presentations and 65 posters highlighted research topics from the “Autonomous Mid-Air Collision Avoidance System for Unmanned Aircraft” to “Sustainable Habitats for Off Grid Operations” to “Breast Cancer Genetic Risk Assessment Models” and so much more. In addition to the panel sessions and oral presentations, a couple of special presentations were offered. Two faculty members, Dr. Bill Caraher (Department of History) and Dr. Julia Zhao (Department of Chemistry) were invited to give the 2009 Dean’s Lecture Series presentations.

The Graduate School’s annual Scholarly Forum has steadily grown since it’s first event in 2001, and we’re optimistic for an even bigger event in the Spring. One of the most popular sessions is the presentation of posters – a graphic representation of the student’s research question, methodology and results. The two hour session is open to the public and the campus community for question and answer.
