April 26, 2013 at Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas
The Federation of North Texas Area Universities is pleased to sponsor its fourth annual Graduate Student Research Symposium on April 26, 2013, at Texas Woman’s University (Symposium Location & Directions). The Federation of North Texas Area Universities is a consortium of three institutions in the North Texas area: Texas Woman’s University, Texas A&M University—Commerce, and the University of North Texas. The primary purpose of the Federation is to engage in institutional collaborations for excellence in selected graduate degree programs and fields of study, to facilitate graduate students’ professional development and research opportunities, and to coordinate administrative services for the benefit of graduate students at the three institutions. The Federation has operated since 1968 when it was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
At the Symposium, graduate students from Federation disciplines across the three universities will present posters of their research findings following the Poster Guidelines. Students submitting poster abstracts for consideration should submit their abstract no later than Friday, April 12, 2013. Judges from the disciplines will judge each poster according to the Criteria for Poster Judging and provide feedback to each student. Awards for the best posters will be presented. Doctoral and master’s students in the following graduate disciplines may submit posters:
• Art/Fine Arts
• Computer Science
• Early Childhood Education
• Library Science
• Molecular Biology
• Music Education
• Special Education
Keynote presentation by Dr. Richard Dixon, National Academy of Sciences Member and Distinguished Research Professor of Biological Sciences, followed by questions and answers with Dr. Dixon.
The Schedule includes:
• Poster presentations by graduate students including continental breakfast
• Meetings of faculty on Federation Committees
• Awards Luncheon featuring Dr. Richard Dixon and awards to poster judging winners
Everyone attending the Symposium—students, faculty, and judges—must register by completing the Symposium Registration Form. There is no cost for attending the Symposium; however, attendees must register so that an accurate count can be determined for breakfast and lunch service. Graduate students who are not presenting posters are also welcome to attend as long as they complete the registration form. Registration must be completed no later than Friday, April 12, 2013.
