The James F. Jakobsen Graduate Conference was established in 1998 (known at that time as the Jakobsen Forum) and is an event unique to the University of Iowa. Through the generous contributions from the Jakobsen family,  the Graduate College, and local businesses, the Graduate Student Senate is proud to bring you a local venue in which to present and view research and graduate work.

The Jakobsen Conference is an annual conference for University of Iowa graduate students, organized by fellow graduate students. Held each Spring semester, the Jakobsen Conference provides a well-attended, public forum for oral and poster presentations. The Jakobsen committee has experienced yearly growth in  Conference participation and attendance, and we anticipate the same trend for the future.

Many of this year's Obermann Graduate Fellows will present at the Jakobsen Conference on topics ranging from working with landlords to make properties more sustainable to building awareness about brain injuries.
