GW Research Showcase: Call for Abstracts

GW Research Showcase (formerly GW Research Days) celebrates discovery, innovation and creativity at GW through poster presentations, keynote speakers and additional programming.

Students and trainees from all disciplines are encouraged to submit abstracts and present their work at this university-wide event.

Submit Your Abstract

Abstracts must be submitted by Monday, March 2, 2020.

Faculty, postdocs and staff are encouraged to attend!

New Ways to Present Your Research

GW Research Showcase is piloting a new format for students and trainees to present their research. Does your research lend itself to a hands-on interactive exhibit? If so, you may apply for tabling space. Read more about this and other changes to the event.

Additional Prize Categories

In addition to the primary abstract categories, participants can opt into specialized categories and compete for additional recognition and prizes:

  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Prize

  • Nashman Prize for Community Based Participatory Research;

  • Women’s Rights and Gender Equality Award;

  • Sustainability Prize;

Accelerate GW I-Corps Program

By participating in GW Research Showcase, you will also be able to nominate yourself to the Accelerate GW I-Corps Site Program. AccelerateGW provides grant funding and training to explore the commercial potential of your research/technologies.
