East Lansing, MI, January 10, 2010: Michigan State University (MSU) and the Council of Graduate Students (COGS) will host the Second Annual Graduate Academic Conference (GAC) on March 26th, 2010. The GAC will be held on the first floor of the Communication Arts and Sciences building from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Application forms for MSU graduate and professional students wishing to present their research at the conference are available from http://msugac.com and the deadline for submitting the application is February 26th, 2010.
The GAC is a forum for MSU graduate and professional students to exhibit their research to the broader MSU community and increase their own presentation and communication skills. The GAC allows graduate and professional students to share their work in two different settings. The presentations will be judged and monetary prizes will be awarded to the best entries in each presentation room.
First, the Showcase Room showcases research that is complete and already deemed to be of a high quality. Here, graduate students present their research orally and in poster format, converting technical research into an accessible format for the public. Second, the Ongoing Research Room will highlight research that is not currently complete but is still of a high standard. In this room, students will choose whether to present their work in poster form.
The GAC is sponsored by several MSU entities including the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies, the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and Services, the Office of the Provost, the Graduate School, and various colleges across the university.

The Council of Graduate Students is the authorized student government representing graduate and professional students at various levels across Michigan State University. COGS’ mission is to improve and advance graduate education in order to ensure the vitality of intellectual discovery.
