Sackler Student Fellows Symposium

DEADLINE: November 15, 2017
ACCEPTING FROM: October 19, 2017
ACCEPTING UNTIL: November 15, 2017
LIMITED TO: North American graduate students enrolled in masters and doctoral programs across all disciplines


Scientists thinking like artists—artists thinking like scientists. When these traditionally defined roles mix together, how is the process of making work or conducting research altered? Does the play between disciplines benefit a designer’s practice, an engineer’s output, or a scientist’s data? What are the hazards and opportunities?

We seek proposals from graduate students in multiple fields and disciplines including art, engineering, medicine, biology, ecology, design, computer science, human-computer interaction, and many others. Graduate students who are working with hybrid approaches to these disciplines—whether individually or as part of a collaboration— should submit a 150-word abstract to propose either a 15-minute talk, a 6-minute presentation, or a piece for a poster session/creative exhibition which will make up a large part of the content for this symposium.

Submissions are due by November 15, 2017.

Selected students will be considered for travel stipends depending on distance traveled. All selected students will receive free registration for all three days of events, including dinners on Sunday and Monday, plus three lunches. We will finalize student selections and stipends by December 1, 2017.
