Providing a forum for discussing challenges for pursuing, producing and utilizing science in the developing world.
The Science in the Developing World Workshop provides a forum for discussing challenges for pursuing, producing and utilizing science in the developing world. The workshop is being held at the Balsillie School of International Affairs on September 17-18, 2015.
We welcome all graduate students to register in the poster competition being held during the two-day workshop. Graduate students are able to present work relevant to the workshop topics:

This is a great opportunity to understand the complexity of diagnosing and ameliorating challenges related to science in the developing world. We welcome all graduate students who would like to contribute to engaging conversation to submit an abstract!
