The Graduate Research Day is the revival of the Graduate Research Conference. All graduate students in the Department of Computer Science are invited to submit an abstract and poster of their research work and virtually attend the event. This year's program will be held at the New Computer Science building and will feature oral presentations, poster presentations, live Q&A and a keynote talk.

The 2022 Graduate Research Day has concluded. Please view the poster booklet to see all the presented work.
