Graduate Research Conference

The Dr. Gregory P. Domin Graduate Research Conference is a multidisciplinary conference that affords Graduate Students from across the U.S. an opportunity to present their research among their peers in an open and relaxed atmosphere.

The goal of the Graduate Research 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 Graduate Research Conference is hosted on the Main Campus of Columbus State University at the Cunningham Conference Center in Columbus, GA.

Conference Events

The Graduate Research Conference is a two day event designed to bring together students, faculty, and community members to discuss new and developing research  across disciplines.  All conference events are held at the Cunningham Conference Center at Columbus State University.

This year the CSU Graduate School is excited to host for the first time a Faculty Research Conference as part of the annual Graduate Research Conference.  Faculty research presentations will take place during the morning and afternoon sessions on Wednesday.  This is a great opportunity for faculty and students to attend together and to support one another's research presentations.

The official Conference Reception and the preliminary round of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition will be held on Wednesday evening.  Get to know and network with the other conference attendees and our conference sponsors in a relaxed and engaging setting!  All Presenters, Sponsors, and Registered Participants are invited to attend the Reception. 

Graduate Student presentations, plenary session, and the 3MT® Finals round will be held throughout the morning and afternoon on Thursday. Presenters are encouraged to attend panels and sessions throughout the day in order to get the full benefit of the conference.

The 3MT® competition, faculty and student presentations, and plenary session are free and open to all conference attendees and the public.
