Graduate and Professional Student Poster Presentations: Request for Abstracts

Created: July 10, 2018

UC Davis Global Affairs is seeking abstracts for poster presentations from graduate and professional students for the 2018 International Research Conference at UC Davis on September 17 and 18, 2018. 

Click here to learn more and to apply online. The submission deadline is July 16, 2018.

The two-day conference, “Innovation within Changing Political and Research Environments,” will include university leaders, scholars, and representatives of foundations, foreign governments, and industry from throughout the globe. It is the first time the International Research Conference is being held on the West Coast or at a University of California campus. 

The 2018 International Research Conference at UC Davis will focus on four themes:

  • Changing political environments and the impact on international research
  • Increasing importance of networks and consortia in advancing international research
  • Role of interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary research in solving global challenges
  • Education of the next generation of international researchers

One of the primary objectives of the conference is to understand the changing environment within which international research is being conducted, particularly research that is conducted outside the United States. The conference also will explore the implications this changing environment has on training and research opportunities for graduate and professional students.

The conference will feature graduate and professional (including veterinary and medical) students poster presentations and a panel discussion focusing on challenges and opportunities for conducting graduate- and/or professional-level research internationally. This is a unique opportunity to for graduate and professional students to share their research with international thought leaders.
