We are excited to announce that the 32nd annual Graduate Research Symposium and Expo will be held in the Graduate Life Center (GLC) at Virginia Tech on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016!

The GSA Research Symposium and Exposition provides a platform for exhilarating exchanges of ideas, invigorating interactions and valuable networking between participants, faculties, departments and research entities as well as corporate bodies, which could pave the way for interdisciplinary research discussion and future collaboration.

This year GSA Research Symposium is hosting 190+ works by graduate and advanced undergraduate students, in a variety of forms including oral and poster presentations, roundtable discussions, and creative installations. There will also be three workshops, and a speech by Abhi Nemani!

The updates regarding the program are coming soon!
