The Dr. Gregory P. Domin Graduate Research Conference (Domin Conference) is an Interdisciplinary conference that affords Graduate students from across the U.S. an opportunity to present their research amongst peers in an open and relaxed atmosphere. The goal of the Conference is to encourage the free flow of ideas and knowledge across a broad spectrum of subjects in order to initiate new thought processes and methods for dealing with the issues facing the world today.
The Domin Conference is hosted on the Main Campus of Columbus State University at the Cunningham Center for Leadership Development in Columbus, GA.
Under the broad theme of “Tipping the Scales: Using a Cross Disciplinary Approach to Solve Global Challenges" a Call for Papers to the 2013 Dr. Gregory P. Domin Graduate Research Conference at Columbus State University is issued. The rise of globalization, rapid dissemination of information and increased interconnectivity has drastically changed the dynamic of everyday existence. What challenges will we face in this new world as a result of the ever-growing rise and distribution of technology and increased spread of culture and ideas?
Proposals need not address the selected theme. Graduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to submit their research for discussion and review. The Conference Chair will arrange accepted Paper proposals into panels based on topic and/or discipline with a focus on encouraging debate, discussion, and potential collaboration. Posters and Arts presentations will occur all together in an open session to foster discussion and potential collaboration.
To submit a paper or poster for presentation at the conference, click on the "Submit Paper for Conference" link on the left of the page. Arts projects should be submitted as a poster and clarify type and special presentation needs in the comments section. The NEW deadline for submission is extended to October 1, 2013; acceptances will be offered on a rolling basis with organized panels no later than October 11, 2013.
