The CBGRC is a symposium that previously showcases graduate level work from universities across Quebec, Ontario, the Maritimes and the North-eastern United States. Now in its 23rd year, the conference is going online and we are therefore excited to expand the scope of geographical areas represented. As always, we will continue with our mission to not only giving students the unique experience of presenting their research in a formal setting, but also to provide ties between academia and industry.

Registration for the 23rd CBGRC is currently closed as we have reach the limit for participation. 

Please refer to the Book of Abstracts to explore the fascinating research of this year's participants. 

Oral and shotgun presentations

In previous years, the conference had a competitive format where participants registered in either the poster or oral presentations in English or French. Awards were presented for both oral and poster presentations. Students were judged based on quality and originality of their research. This year, the format may change, but the generally catergories, and the opportunities for students to win awards, will remain. 

The competition is open to all students presenting research in the following categories:

  • Analytical chemistry
  • Inorganic chemistry
  • Physical chemistry
  • Organic chemistry
  • Molecular biology
  • Biochemistry
  • Environmental chemistry
  • Computational chemistry
  • Nanochemistry
  • Chemistry education
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Material Engineering
  • Shotgun presentations

In the past, we have had judges representing institutions such as Concordia University, University of Montreal, McGill University, UQAM and several local companies. This year, we are also committed to inviting prominent researchers and members of industry, allowing students the chance to discuss research and inquire about potential job opportunities.
