The Trent Graduate Students in Science (TGSS) Symposium took place on March 9th, 2019 in Otonabee College at Trent University (Figure 1) from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM. The purpose of this meeting was to bring together graduate researchers in a variety of different scientific disciplines to discuss the most recent scientific discoveries at Trent University and topics relevant to graduate studies as well as to facilitate networking and the practicing of presentation skills. Keynote speakers Dr. Raymond March and Dr. Douglas Evans used their own experiences and research to give insight into graduate studies and Jayme Stabler led a workshop on being an effective teaching assistant. Graduate students presented orally in morning and afternoon sessions (Session 1 and Session 2) in two concurrent presentation rooms (A and B) as well as in a short poster and ePoster presentation session midday. A summary of the TGSS Symposium is included in Figure 2. To facilitate the exchange of information in a multidisciplinary fashion, students in various scientific disciplines were dispersed throughout the sessions rather than grouped together. Each oral, poster and ePoster presentation was judged by a minimum of two judges. Each oral, poster and ePoster presentation was judged by a minimum of two judges. There was a total of 70 attendees, which included 28 graduate student presenters, 9 presentation judges and/or keynote speakers, and 5 members of the organizing committee.
