Established in 1987, the Western Research Forum is the largest multidisciplinary graduate research conference at Western. It is organized by the SOGS Academic Committee and is held annually in March. The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for graduate students to share their innovative work to a wide audience and discuss how their research transcends academic boundaries. The Western Research Forum is valuable and unique in that it is designed for researchers to engage with others outside their field, with the goal of exchanging thoughts and exploring ideas from various perspectives. For more information about the Western Research Forum, including current and past conference abstracts, supplemental material, photos, and videos, please visit Scholarship@Western.
