About the Shared Knowledge Conference
The most recent conference, held on November 8, 2017 at Hodgin Hall, featured graduate student work through two powerful showcases:
1. LoboBITES, a “three-minute thesis”-type competition. Graduate students explain their thesis or dissertation without jargon to a non-academic audience in three minutes or less. Prizes include up to $1000 in scholarships and a chance to represent UNM at a regional "three-minute thesis"-type competition in Las Vegas, Nevada.

2. Poster Sessions, during which graduate students from varied disciplines across campus present their research in poster format and engage directly with conference attendees. Click here to view abstracts for the posters presented at the Fall 2017 conference.
The event was free to attend and open to the UNM community and beyond, and was sponsored by Graduate Studies, the Vice President for Research, and UNM Alumni Affairs. Stay tuned for details about next year's conference!
