The School of Public Policy is inviting students to register as attendees or submit research proposals for the second annual Graduate Student Research Conference.  Last year’s conference drew over 100 attendees and 30 presenters from several colleges and universities. 


Graduate students are invited to submit proposals using knowledge and perspectives of the humanities and theoretical or applied methods to further domestic or international public policy discourse. Areas of inquiry include social sciences, science, technology, government, national defense, environmental concerns, education, social welfare, and any other field concerning policy development.

Renowned faculty from the School of Public Policy will chair research panels and serve as discussants and subject experts. Each selected participant will have 10-15 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes for discussion.                    

Please submit the attached proposal to sppconf@gmu.edu no later than March 1, 2013. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis until all spaces are filled.  If feasible, please submit your proposal as soon as possible.
