FCS Graduate Students - Please plan on attending the Student Research Day on April 28th, 2011.
Many of you have research posters based upon Nick's statistics course, your thesis, or your other
research.  I strongly encourage each of you to apply to present at this conference.  Please note the
deadline for a title and abstract is coming up in about two weeks - April 8th. You should run your 
title and abstract by your committee chair for their approval before submitting.   This is a great
opportunity to showcase the exciting and important research we are doing in the FCS department
and excellent experience for graduate students.

Also, please note that as the semester winds down, you should reserve Wed. afternoons for 
thesis and non-thesis defenses.  Miriam will be defending her thesis at the end of April, and Andrew
and Barbara will be defending their non-thesis projects in a poster session (date to be announced).
Hopefully we'll have a few more defenses coming up, too.  

As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
