Each year, the School of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Students’ Union (GSU) coordinate an interdisciplinary conference for graduate students and a keynote address in memory of Dr. Frederick A Aldrich (First Dean of Graduate Studies, 1970-87).

The Aldrich conference offers graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable presentation experience in a supportive and interactive environment at Memorial. It is open to any graduate student that wishes to present course work, a work in-progress or a completed research paper/poster they feel is valuable and interesting. In addition to student presentations, the two-days conference will provide networking opportunities, workshops and social events to discuss academic-related topics with other students and faculty from Memorial.

This years conference was held in St. John’s, NL March 23-24, 2019 and focused on Researchers as Innovators. MAEP students from EPI attended this conference and two students Victoria Gallagher and Hailey Morning received awards for the Best Poster Presentations.
