Call for Proposals: Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) 2018 Annual Conference

March 13, 2018

The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) invites submissions for concurrent sessions for the 2018 CAGS Annual Conference to be held at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg, November 6-8, 2018.

They welcome proposals that touch on topics that address graduate studies in the 21st century, for example:

  • What actions have been taken in rethinking the PhD and are they effective?
  • How might changes in population demographics, societal needs, the global and political landscapes impact graduate education and/or vice versa?
  • How do we encourage indigenous students to undertake graduate studies?
  • How do we address academic bullying?
  • How do we address mental health issues among graduate students?

Session leaders are urged to form panels of speakers who can provide a well-rounded discussion and, when possible, offer practical advice and/or clear take-aways. A concurrent session lasts 75 minutes and should reserve sufficient time for adequate discussion and exchange of ideas with participants. Note that student perspectives are welcome.

Please provide a working session title, a brief description, and the name(s) and affiliations of proposed speaker(s). Note that speakers are responsible for the costs of their travel and accommodation. CAGS will make necessary arrangements for audio-visual requirements.

Please forward proposals and contact information to using "Concurrent session 2018" in the subject line. Proposals will be accepted until April 30, 2018.
