Academic Research Presentations

As part of the conference program, the Governor’s Hurricane Conference® (GHC) is hosting a workshop for all researchers to present their original academic research on Friday, 10:30 a.m. – Noon. Students currently enrolled in institutions of higher education or those academics focused on emergency management related topics are encouraged to submit an abstract for the Annual GHC in May. Presenting at the conference is a unique opportunity for you to share emergency management knowledge and expertise with student peers, conference participants and emergency management professionals. Posters will be displayed throughout the week in the registration area.

Presentations must focus on original research, and the topic must be related to the field of emergency management. Presenters should construct a short PowerPoint presentation that includes the research methodology and data sources used for the project. Participants will have 10-15 minutes to demonstrate their findings. Following the presentation, opportunity will be provided to discuss their topic with a panel of emergency management stakeholders. Those selected will also be required to submit a PDF suitable for poster display, highlighting their research.

Application and abstract must be submitted by March 17, 2023, 5:00 p.m. via email to Jessica Geib at with a subject line of “GHC Research Presentation Proposal.” The selected presentations will be announced mid-April.
