Thank you for your interest in presenting at the Global Graduate Collaboration Conference (GGCC) online poster session!
GGCC is seeking authors to share their qualitative and quantitative research and practice. Students with and without collaboration experiences are welcome! We are asking that information be illustrated in the form of posters to encourage the publication and sharing of ideas without the typical stress that comes with refining a manuscript for publication or conference presentation. However, research shared in posters is expected to be near completion and should strive to contribute something new in its respective field, as well as meet the highest standards of scholarship, including ethical integrity and research quality.
While the theme of the conference focuses on collaboration, we understand that not all graduate students are collaborating with others. Therefore, all authors should include a section in their discussion about how their future research can incorporate collaboration with other graduate students, professors, teachers, students, businesses, schools, and/or community members.
Submissions should address issues in the Human Sciences and fall into one of the following content streams:
Because the conference will be live-streamed to an international audience in different time zones, there will be no in-person presentations of posters. Instead, posters will be exhibited online through the conference website beginning May 1st. Registered participants will be encouraged to review posters online before the start of the conference and leave their comments and feedback for the authors. Participants will also be asked to vote online for the poster they think makes a noteworthy contribution to the field, and has the most potential for future collaborations.
Prepare a poster and save it as a PDF (you will only be allowed to submit your poster as a PDF). This document is used for the review process.
Posters should fit on one side of a one-page pdf and be presented in APA style.
The following sections should be addressed on your poster:
- Poster Title
- Background/Significance: Begin by describing background information about your topic as well as the significance in the field. Explain the theoretical foundation for your research.
- Research Questions/Hypotheses: Briefly summarize your research questions and hypotheses.
- Research Methodology: Briefly discuss the methods you are using to provide evidence for your thesis and show how this is timely, relevant, and cutting-edge. Indicate the kinds of procedures you are using to answer your hypothesis. Explain the implementation of your methods.
- Results: Provide preliminary results and conclusions based on the data that you have collected.
- Discussion: Discuss the potential impact of your results and as well as limitations. Also, include a section about implications for future collaborations which should explain how future research can incorporate collaboration with other graduate students, professors, teachers, students, businesses, schools, and/or community members.
Poster submissions are welcome from all races, genders, ages, religions and sexual orientations. Poster submissions should exemplify the highest standards of research in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. This includes, where appropriate, conveyance of a central argument or thesis statement, protection of human subjects and vulnerable populations, and the use of established research methodologies and sources.
Poster submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 25, 2018 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time

Peer Review Process for Awards:
All submissions can choose to undergo a competitive peer review process to be eligible for awards and recognition. Review is conducted by an interdisciplinary committee of doctoral students in the human sciences and a faculty mentor.
Posters will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Contribution: Posters should exhibit both knowledge of existing literature and research on the subject as well as that it makes an original contribution by adding something new and interesting to the conversation in your field;
- Rigor: Posters are expected to meet the highest standards of scholarship, including ethical integrity and research quality, in its respective field;
- Relevance: Posters should demonstrate the project’s relevance and applicability to collaboration (descriptions of potential interdisciplinary, international, across universities, or multi-sector collaboration are encouraged).
Posters will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 25th, 2018 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time.
Applicants will be notified as they are accepted. Please contact the Global Graduate Collaboration Conference Steering Committee with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Authors who are selected will have their poster uploaded to the conference website as they are accepted so attendees have a chance to look at the posters and provide leading up to and the days of the conference. Please encourage fellow students to go online and check out your poster!
So there’s no in-person poster session where I display my poster?
Nope! The poster session for this conference will be completely online. Having an online forum for poster presentations allows us to utilize in-person conference time for skill building and networking, and enables a wider audience to provide feedback.
When is the poster submission deadline?
Poster submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until 11:59pm EST on Friday, May 25th.
I want to submit a poster, but I’m not sure if I can attend the conference in person. Can I still submit?
At least one author of each poster must attend the conference in person at either the University of Delaware, the University of Tubingen, or the University of Patras, or online if they are not local to those universities. Details about exact times and locations of the conference at each site will be posted soon. Please check the website frequently for updated information or join us on Facebook and Twitter for updates as they happen.
I submitted a poster, but I don’t see it online.
All submitted posters will be posted on the conference website as they are accepted. Check back frequently to see new posters! All participants are encouraged to visit the poster session page online and offer feedback to authors, as well as make connections for future collaborations.
I’m not sure my poster fits with the theme of the conference.
Poster submissions should have something to do with: business, education, government, non-profit, or community outreach. These broad categories are being used so as many graduate student researchers can present posters at the conference as possible. Even if you are not sure if your research fits, please submit!
How do I find out if my poster was accepted?
We will send out emails to the primary authors as posters are accepted. Be sure to check the website frequently to see if your poster has been posted.
When do I find out if my poster won an award?
Poster awards will be presented at the close of the conference, on Friday, June 1st.
