What is GTRIC?

The Georgia Tech Research & Innovation Conference (GTRIC) is a yearly event that captures and exhibits the cutting-edge scientific and technological research conducted by graduate students here at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Graduate students from all disciplines participate to give their research Institute-wide exposure and compete for travel awards and scholarship prizes.  Last year the conference showcased the work of approximately 400 students, and we hope to accommodate a similar number of competitors for this year's event. GTRIC is also composed of three competitions that can be applied for separately: a Poster Session, Innovation Competition, and Ivan Allen College Competition.
