The CBGRC is a symposium that showcases graduate level work from universities across Quebec, Ontario, the Maritimes and the North-eastern United States. Now in its 6th year, the conference was founded on the idea of not only giving students the unique experience of presenting their research in a formal setting, but to provide ties between academia and industry. The conference has a competitive format. Participants register in either the poster or public-speaking contest. Awards are presented for both oral and poster presentations. The competition is open to all students presenting research in the following categories: 1) Analytical chemistry 2) Inorganic chemistry 3) Physical chemistry 4) Organic chemistry 5) Molecular chemistry 6) Biochemistry

The event lasts two days and includes lunch, a wine & cheese and an after party held at the end of the Friday session. The symposium itself is open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to sit in during the lectures and take the time to observe the poster demonstrations. Poster and public-speaking presentations are critiqued by a panel of judges. These judges are volunteers and are either academic or industrial representatives. In the past, we have had judges representing institutions such as Concordia University, l'Universite de Montreal, McGill University, UQAM and companies such as Wyeth-Ayerst, Merck-Frost, Fisher Scientific and more. In addition, many of our sponsors are present at the conference. This allows students the chance to discuss research and inquire about potential job opportunities.
