Each year since 2008 students from the UW-Madison SLA Program have joined with SLA students from University of Iowa to host the SLA Graduate Student Symposium, held alternately in Madison and Iowa City. Student organizers invite keynote speakers, review presentation proposals, secure funding, and arrange all aspects of the two-day event. The Symposium is a wonderful chance for students to meet other scholars, young and more experienced, gain practice presenting before peers, and get feedback on their work and ideas. The 2016 Symposium will once again be held on the UW-Madison campus.
