IDR & GSA Research Symposium 2021
This year, we feature TWO distinguished Keynote speakers!
The Spring 2021 event will be our 37th Annual GSA Research Symposium and Exposition. This year’s theme is “Research Carries On!”
As part of this event, we provide awards for the top participants in each of the major competitions:
- synchronous virtual research talks (10 minutes)
- flash talks (5 minutes)
- pre-recorded videos (15 minutes max, approved on case-by-case basis).
Prospective presenters are asked to submit their 300 (or fewer) word abstracts using the link on the menu to the right. The submissions will be anonymously evaluated by two or more peer reviewers in order to ensure the high quality of the presentations, and the ability of the presenters to communicate with a broad audience.
Please note: All presentation proposal submissions must be made from your vt.edu email address.
Questions? Please email the GSARS Chair from your VT email address.
Over $24,000 in awards will be provided in the form of scholarships for outstanding presenters. All of these funds were derived from donations from our many generous offices, colleges, schools, departments, and programs at Virginia Tech. These sponsors are listed below.
