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. Thanks to generous contributions from the Jakobsen family, the Graduate College, and local businesses, the Graduate Student Senate is once again able to provide this exciting opportunity for graduate students to present their research.

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 Submissions Co-Chairs: Maria Morabe (marialiana-morabe@uiowa.edu) and Stephanie Kupfer (stephanie-kupfer@uiowa.edu).

This year the Jakobsen Conference is proud to partner with Three Minute Thesis (3MT). For more information about this competition, please visit http://www.grad.uiowa.edu/three-minute-thesis-competition-at-the-university-of-iowa.

Thank you and we'll see you at the conference!
