The Graduate Resource Center at the University of New Mexico hosts the 2014 Shared Knowledge Conference Wednesday, April 9 and Thursday, April 10 in the Student Union Building. The conference provides an opportunity for graduate/professional and undergraduate students to present their research and gain presentation experience, serve as role models for other students and participate in networking to help them plan for future careers.

Over $4,000 in scholarships will be awarded to the top presentations among a diverse set of formats, including student films, academic posters, oral presentations and an elevator speech competition. The keynote luncheon will feature students from Texas Tech University using motion tracking technology to put on a live electronic music performance using Xbox Kinect.

Nonprofit professionals, state agencies and community scholars/researchers are invited to play the important role of connecting the work done in the academic arena to the issues the wider New Mexico community face on a daily basis.
