While we are hoping that as many graduate students as possible will attend the conference, we also understand that the $100 registration fee, though reduced, is still a substantial amount.
Over the past few months, this website has been highlighting certain presenters and sessions on our website (http://berks2014.com/category/featuring-the-berks), and are happy to announce that we are opening this up to you. We invite you to go through our program (recently put online at http://berks2014.com/thursday) to see what jumps out at you. Next, write up a 300-400 word post that explains your enthusiasm for a particular session, paper, and/or presenter to the Berks audience and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning entry will be posted online and its author will be given free registration for the Berks!
This competition is open to all U of T graduate students. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, May 16th.
