In response to Yarmouk University's efforts to reach the rank of the prestigious universities in the region through the improvement of the scientific research conducted at the university and through increasing the projects funded by internal and external funders, and in response to the ambitious strategic plan approved by the university for the years 2016 - 2020, the Deanship of Scientific Research and Graduate Studies in the university adopted an annual conference for scientific research.

The conference has each year a specific theme that adds to leveraging the level of scientific research at the university, and honors and publicizes outstanding research done during the academic year in which the conference is being held.

To achieve the overall objective of the conference, it includes a series of events such as the showcase of the distinguished theses and doctoral dissertations, and presentation of research projects supported from inside and outside the university, as well as a series of specialized training workshops and inspiring lectures.
