The symposium is a student-run event, designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students with an opportunity to present their original research and receive feedback from members of industry, government professionals, academic experts and members of the community.

This is our first virtual conference! A digital program will be provided to view student abstracts with links to poster presentations and audio clips of students presenting their work. Oral presentations will be on April 24th from 10:30 AM – 12:15 PM and from 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM.
