Graduate Student Symposium

The Odum School Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is a chance to hear the latest research from the graduate student community and posters by undergrad researchers in the Odum School. It is an interdisciplinary conference, including presenters from all branches of ecology at OSE. This event is organized by the graduate students in order to showcase the ecological research being conducted by the Odum graduate community.

The 2024 Odum School of Ecology Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) will be held on February 9 – 10, 2024. This year’s Keynote speaker is Dr. Cecilia Sanchez (PhD Ecology, 2019), from EcoHealth Alliance. Their research involves understanding the connection between human sociology and animal-borne pathogens. Learn more about them here!

The deadline to submit abstracts for 5 minute lightning talks and 12 minute standard presentations was December 1, 2023. Presentations are open to students at all stages in their research, from initial proposals to nearly complete theses and dissertations. If you have already submitted an abstract, you’re locked in!
