About the Symposium

The EAS Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is brought to you each year by volunteer graduate students from the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences with the goal of providing EAS graduate students an opportunity to present their research in a formal conference setting.

The symposium consists of 16-20 oral presentations and a poster session. All presentations will be objectively reviewed by EAS faculty, research staff, and post-doctoral students. Judges will be scoring presentations primarily based on scientific merit, clarity, and overall quality of the talk or poster. Individuals with the highest score in each section will receive a certificate and a monetary award.

The 16th Annual Graduate Student Symposium will take place in the new Kendeda Living Building and the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building at Georgia Tech. Oral presentations will be held in the morning in the Kendeda Living Building (room 230) and Ford ES&T for the afternoon oral and poster sessions (room L1118 & L1 Atrium).

Free breakfast and beverages are served, with free Lunch in the Ford ES&T L1 Atrium. For a full schedule, see the symposium schedule tab!
