The 2022-2023 organizing committee for the College of Staten Island Graduate Student Conference is happy to re-establish this event after a five-year hiatus. We invite proposals from students in Master’s and Doctoral programs on any topic at any point in their graduate program, particularly those in the early stages of research. Conference organizers aim to present a premier opportunity for emerging scholars to present papers, participate in discussions, network, and develop collaborations across different disciplines.

Graduate students interested in participating in the conference should complete and upload the following as a single PDF document to the blackboard folder “Graduate Conference: Research & Scholarship – Spring 2023 (CSI)”:

1.   Conference presentation proposal submission form
2.   A draft of the research paper/project (page limit should be discussed and agreed upon with the mentor and it should be ten to 20 pages long, including references and appendices, single column, 12-pt font, double spaced, with one-inch margins from each side.)
3.  A draft of presentation slides (each presenter will have 20 minutes for the presentation and ten minutes for Q&A. Four to six slides will be enough for the organizing committee to assess the presentation proposal. Participants will be able to modify presentation slides before the conference program is finalized.)

Conference presentation proposal submission deadline:  11:59 pm, Wednesday, Mar. 15, 2023

Mentor approval deadline: 11:59 pm, Friday, Mar. 31, 2023
