Dear PGR students,
Every year we hold a Research Symposium in the school where our research students are given the opportunity to present their research to the school. In previous years this has been held in the Autumn but, as announced earlier in the year, we have made the decision to move this to the Spring. This year the symposium will be held 10-12 April and there is an expectation that all PGR students take part (*). However, different students play different roles in the symposium, as outlined below. Note that all of you will be required to carry out some activity in the EasyChair system and if you do not already have an account you will need to register.
First-year students. You will need to attend the symposium. As part of COMP80122 Scientific Methods II - Fundamental Aspects of Research Methodology you will be asked to review a number of talks given during the symposium. You will receive further emails about this.
Second-year PhD and CDT students (and third year CDT students). You will need to prepare and present a poster (see here for details and advice). You will need to submit this before the symposium for printing (further details will follow) so please start planning this now. There will be a prize for best poster. Please submit a title and abstract for your poster here by 12 March, you will be able to update it later.
Third-year PhD students and fourth year CDT students. You will need to give a 15-minute oral presentation that should be different from your continuation interview (the audience, purpose, and duration are different). Please submit a title and abstract for your talk here by 12 March, you will be able to update it later. This presentation is a great opportunity for you to practice presenting your work and to get feedback from your peers. To take full advantage of this opportunity we suggest you begin to start planning this now (and talk to your Supervisor about it).
Please do get in touch if you have any queries. I look forward to seeing you all at the Symposium.
Best wishes, Giles
(*) If you know that you will not be able to take part then please let me know so that I can make a record of this.
