Graduate Conference

The Dr. Gregory P. Domin Graduate 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 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 Conference is hosted on the Main Campus of Columbus State University at the Cunningham Conference Center in Columbus, GA.

Conference Events

The Graduate Conference involves events spread over two days. Join us Wednesday night at the Cunningham Center for our official Conference Reception and the preliminary round of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition. 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. The 3MT® competition is open to all conference attendees and the public.

The conference presentations, plenary session, and 3MT® Finals round will be held throughout the day 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, conference presentations, and plenary session are open to all conference attendees and the public.

While it is not required that students participate in both the 3MT® competition and the Graduate Conference, those working on thesis or dissertation research are strongly encouraged to do so.
