The Society of Graduate Students presents the
25th Annual Western Research Forum
You, Me, and Our Community: Research Passions and Perspectives at Western
at the University of Western Ontario
on March 26th and 27th, 2012.
Mission: Established in 1987, the Western Research Forum (WRF) is an annual, multidisciplinary conference organized by the SOGS Academic Committee and held at the University of Western Ontario as an opportunity for the dynamic and prodigious graduate students in all disciplines to showcase their innovative research and creative products to their colleagues and other members of the UWO community. This year, the theme of You, Me, and Our Community: Research Passions and Perspectives at Western is to encourage students to share their research in a manner that is accessible to all and demonstrates the relevance to “you, me, and our community”. Students are encouraged to engage in networking and professional development opportunities at the conference.
