Announcing the third “Research Intersections” event taking place at 5:30 PM on Thursday, November 19 at 5:30 PM, at the University of Miami Hospital Ballrooms (1400 NW 12th Ave, Miami, FL 33136). The theme of this event is “Representing the World: Maps, Models, and Mimeses”. The UM Research Intersections program is a graduate-student-lead initiative that aims to facilitate cross-campus collaborations through a series of networking events at all UM campuses.

This upcoming event will feature flash presentations (5 minutes) by graduate student or postdoc on research taking place at UM, as well as a poster session. All graduate students, postdocs, and faculty are invited to attend the event for food, drinks, and new research connections. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.  The group is still looking for presenters that fit the theme.  If you are a graduate student or a postdoc, or want to suggest a graduate student or postdoc whose presentation would fit this semester’s theme, please email


Call for Abstracts

To submit an abstract for a 5-minute oral presentation or poster presentation, please fill out the form here.   Graduate students and postdocs are encouraged to submit an abstract focusing on your research topic and how it relates to “Representing the World”.  If you would like to present a poster don’t feel obligated to create a new poster.
