Graduate Conferences

The inaugural University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) Multidisciplinary Graduate Research Conference (UMGRC) is a pan-Canadian, refereed, academic conference designed to showcase the work of graduate students at UPEI and beyond.

The theme of the conference is, “Emerging Scholars: Illuminating Graduate Research.” The conference will offer graduate students across Canada the opportunity to present their graduate research with either a poster or a paper presentation, acquire skills and knowledge through workshops, and participate in dialogue and discussion between and within disciplines.

Call for Presentations: First Annual UPEI Multidisciplinary Graduate Research Conference
