Be sure to check out the "words of wisdom" and reasons *YOU* should present from previous conference winners:


The James F. Jakobsen Graduate Conference was established in 1998 (known at that time as the Jakobsen Forum) and is an event unique to the University of Iowa. Through the generous contributions from the Jakobsen family,  the Graduate College, and local businesses, the Graduate Student Senate is proud to bring you a local venue in which to present and view research and graduate work.

The Jakobsen Conference is an annual conference for University of Iowa graduate students, organized by fellow graduate students. Held each Spring semester, the Jakobsen Conference provides a well-attended, public forum for oral and poster presentations. The Jakobsen committee has experienced yearly growth in  Conference participation and attendance, and we anticipate the same trend for the future.

Browse the pages on the left for more detailed conference information. The conference committee welcomes any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to direct these to the Judging and Submissions Co-Chair .

Thank you and we'll see you at the conference! Be sure to browse the abstract archive from previous conferences, as well as the 2012 Awardee Spotlights!
