ABOUT THE EAS GRADUATE STUDENT SYMPOSIUM

The EAS Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is brought to you each year by volunteer graduate students from the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences with the goal of providing EAS graduate students an opportunity to present their research in a formal conference setting.

The symposium consists of 16-20 oral presentations and a poster session. All presentations will be objectively reviewed by EAS faculty and research staff. Judges will be scoring presentations primarily based on scientific merit and the clarity and quality of the talk or poster. Individuals with the highest score in each section will receive a certificate and a monetary award.

The 14th Annual Graduate Student Symposium will take place in the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building at Georgia Tech. Oral presentations will be held in room L1125, and the poster session will take place in the L1 Atrium.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Andrew Michael of USGS Menlo Park. He will be giving a talk entitled "Listening to Earthquakes: Science, Education, Art". Dr. Michael is the current president of the Seismological Society of America, and his website can be found here.
