About CBGRC

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 24th year, the conference is going online Friday November 19th 2021 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 24th CBGRC will open shortly 

Please refer to the Book of Abstracts from last year's conference to explore the fascinating research of previous participants. 


Oral and shotgun presentations

CBGRC has a competitive format where participants can register for oral presentations in either English or French. Awards are presented for both oral and short form "shotgun" presentations. Students are judged based on quality and originality of their research. 

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.
