About the Shared Knowledge Conference

The conference is a yearly event designed to celebrate and showcase UNM graduate students and their outstanding research and scholarship. The conference exclusively features the work of UNM graduate students and provides a venue for these students to share their work with the UNM and larger New Mexican communities, bridging borders that too-often divide academia from the larger world, and in so doing spark conversations and forge lasting partnerships.

The conference is free to attend for everyone, and no affiliation with UNM is required to attend. The conference does NOT charge any fees for students to participate or present.

UNM Graduate Studies hosts the conference
  




The LoboBITES Competition

LoboBITES are three minute verbal presentations on theses, dissertations, and other substantial research projects, similar to the trademarked Three Minute Thesis (3MT). Think of them as short-format TED talks. Students explain their research in a compelling and easily digestible way, foregoing jargon and instead using language and terms accessible to a general, non-academic audience likely unfamiliar with the student’s specific discipline. Presentations are judged by a panel consisting of UNM and Albuquerque community leaders. Top contestants can win up to $1000 in scholarships, and the first place winner goes on to represent UNM at a regional Three-Minute Thesis competition. All graduate and post-undergraduate professional students at UNM are eligible to participate.




About the Poster Showcase

In the poster session, graduate students from programs across campus display their research in poster format and engage directly with conference attendees and fellow scholars. Research posters come in a wide variety of topics, crossing fields throughout the humanities and sciences. Poster evaluators are also be on hand to provide feedback to presenters. Students are nominated by their academic program to display a research poster at the conference.
