The Graduate Research Conference

Held every two years, the Graduate Research Conference is an activity undertaken by the UPV Graduate Program Office. The conference showcases graduate students' successful completion of independent work through their theses or dissertations. At the same time, it gives them the opportunity to exchange ideas and keep abreast of more recent trends in research topics and methodologies in their respective disciplines. Evaluators are also invited from various related fields so that appreciation is formalized through awarding outstanding performance both in oral and poster presentation; these awards accompany cash prizes.
