Graduate Student Symposium

The Graduate Student Symposium has been an annual spring event since 1999, when graduate students of the University of South Alabama, the University of Southern Mississippi, and Louisiana State University joined together to create an opportunity for students in marine, biological, and environmental sciences to present their research in a supportive, non-threatening environment at a cost suitable for students.

GSS is an event where graduate students from various universities in the Gulf Coast region can come to present their research and share ideas on common interests in a friendly and welcoming environment among their peers. GSS is also a great place for graduate students to connect and network with others in related fields.

The three founding universities take turns hosting GSS. This year 2017 GSS was hosted by the CEGO, Louisiana State University March 17- 19, 2017 at LUMCON
