GWIS Spring Seminar Series


Seminar Series- Call for Abstract (1)



This year the Graduate Women in Science is hosting its first Women in STEM Seminar Series. Our goal is to narrow the gap between men and women in the field and help raise awareness of current research being conducted at FSU. Attendees will learn about the innovative research being conducted at the university and ways in which even now our undergraduate population can promote change in the STEM fields. The event will also address issues about options after college for undergraduate students pursuing degrees in the STEM fields including graduate school, industry, life in academia, as well as information about national labs such as the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. The goal is to provide inspiration to young women looking to enter into the STEM fields by having role models at the university in graduate, faculty, and staff positions.

A panel discussion will be held in the afternoon, which is consisted of women pursuing a diverse career in STEM such as graduate student, professor, national lab (the Mag Lab), Florida government, and industry.

For our closing seminar, a keynote talk will be given by Dr. Liesl Folks from State University of New York at Buffalo. She is currently the Dean of School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Free breakfast and lunch will be provided and the event is free!


We will be accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Oral presentations will be given 10 minutes for each talk and 5 minutes for questions from the audience. The poster session will occur during the lunch hour.


The abstract deadline is March 26, 2018. We are accepting all abstracts from STEM related fields. Abstracts must be geared toward a general audience. This event is intended for the FSU undergraduate population from the freshman to senior level students.  The purpose of each presentations is to introduce the research conducted within your group. Submission is open to all all STEM fields. Abstracts are limited to 150 words.
