The Shared Knowledge Conference is a celebration of UNM graduate students and their outstanding research and scholarship. The conference provides a venue for students to engage with the UNM and larger New Mexican communities, to cross the borders that too-often divide academia from the larger world and in so doing spark conversations and work together for a world of equity, innovation, discovery, and growth.

In contrast to past years’ conferences, the Fall 2017 conference features 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. 

Submissions are due October 9th. The event is free to attend and open to the UNM community and beyond, and is sponsored by Graduate Studies, the Vice President for Research, and UNM Alumni Affairs

The Venue

This year's conference will be held where UNM began, at the beautiful and historic Hodgin Hall on UNM campus. Poster sessions will be spread throughout Hodgin's series of warm, inviting meeting and gathering spaces, providing a unique opportunity for participants and attendees to share ideas and engage dialogues in a distinguished setting. The LoboBITES competition will be held in the Bobo Room, a stunning presentation hall on the third floor. We hope you'll agree that Hodgin Hall promises to serve as an inspiring venue for this memorable event. Special thanks to UNM Alumni Affairs for their generous assistance with the space!
