For several years, a regional Software Graduate Student Symposium (GSRS) was held in conjuntion with the ISR Research Forum. GSRS students had a unique opportunity to share and present their research to each other and a wider audience. GSRS students also participated in the Research Forum poster and demo reception. Industry attendees and other Research Forum participants were thus able to mingle with the best-of-the-best regional students in one place at one time. Note that the ISR GSRS was previously named ISR Graduate Student Research Forum (GSRF).
