GRC 2017

Welcome to the 24th Annual Graduate Research Conference (GRC), located at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton.

This year marks 24 years of celebrating graduate student research and innovation, allowing students to have a platform to present their work while developing communication skills in a supportive environment.

There are many ways to get involved! We are looking for oral and poster presenters, peer reviewers, committee members, volunteers, judges, and attendees. As a multi-disciplinary conference, there’s something for everybody at the 2017 GRC.

This year, we are looking forward to many exciting changes. The timeline of the GRC registration and peer review process has changed in accordance with feedback received from students and committee members. Please keep an eye on this site for updates as they become available.

We are also engaging with UNB departments for suggestions and improvements. Last year, the poster designing workshop hosted by the UNB Media Services was a great success. If you have a suggestion or idea for a service that would benefit graduate students as they prepare for the conference, we encourage you to reach out to

We hope you will join us for the 2017 GRC on March 18th, 2017 on the UNB Fredericton campus!

GRC Social

We encourage you to join us after the conference for our yearly GRC Social at the Grad House. This social gives presenters, faculty, judges, volunteers, and attendees and opportunity to meet, chat, and have fun.

Please join us for some drinks and good conversation. All presenters and volunteers will be given a drink ticket for a beverage of their choice. The Grad House is located at 676 Windsor Street.

Hope to see you there!
