Conferences and publications 2019-2020

This year was challenging for the majority of students in the U.S. and globally. Despite the pandemic, graduate students from the SLA program were engaged in many innovative research projects. Their papers were accepted to numerous conferences as well as their articles were published in prestigious journals. 
 
Kudos for all your hard work, dear SLAers! Stay strong and fearless!
