The conference provides the opportunity for students from a number of universities across the United States to share their research, perspectives and practices. It also creates networking opportunities.

“We focus to bring diversity at the conference and present scholarly research to the NMSU community, faculty, students and the attendees from outside NMSU,” conference coordinator Gopal Tamang said.

Faculty, graduate and undergraduate students from NMSU and nearby universities are invited to attend and make their oral and poster presentations. Topics for the presentations may include science, engineering, technology, governance, education, culture, economics and development.

The guest speakers will be Gyan Neupane from Arizona State University; Kiran Sitoula, vice mayor of Indian Head City, Maryland; and Alok Bohara from the University of New Mexico. The keynote speaker will be Amod Kumar Pokhrel, from the University of California, Berkeley.

The conference will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Pete V. Domenici Hall, Room 109. Registration is free, as well as refreshments and door prizes.
