Graduate Committee is pleased to report the attendance at the Graduate Appreciation and Research Showcase event last Friday. We "sighted" 37 current plus 3 visiting students and 18 faculty.

Thanks to all who presented 7 blitz oral presentations which allowed 3.14 minute talks with approximately 3.14 slides. Hmm; it was noticed some approximations were rather accurate, while others were not. We also had 12.3 poster presentations with 13 poster presenters; this particular discrepancy is due to a technical glitch in the poster production at the library. Congratulations to Poster co-winners Branwen Purdy and Dallas Foster, and to Blitz Presentation winner Stephen Krughoff! Great work! Please see https://math.oregonstate.edu/node/15650 for the full list.

GCOM would also like to thank Department Head and Graduate School for sponsoring and supporting the event. Big thanks go to Deanne, Joy, Graduate Liason and SIAM student chapter who provided organization and logistics support, and many faculty who volunteered in selecting the presentation awards (TBA) as well as were involved in professional development activities. Students interested in more professional development please stay tuned for some further activities.
