About PSRS 2018
The University of Manchester’s Postgraduate Summer Research Showcase (PSRS) is a unique event that brings postgraduate researchers from across the University of Manchester all together under one roof. It provides a great networking opportunity for researchers to explore interdisciplinary connections, whilst giving wider stakeholders the chance to understand the brilliant depth and breadth of research at Manchester.
By bringing a large conference environment to the University, it also gives an exciting platform for postgraduate researchers to practise their presentation and communication skills in front of both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
This year’s event will take place on Tuesday 26th June 2018 in the Whitworth Hall and will feature over 150 poster presentations, as well as research images and interactive posters which will be displayed on touchscreens.
The deadline for submissions to all the competitions is Monday 14th May 2018.
Please visit our website http://www.psrs.manchester.ac.uk for further detail and guidelines.
Any questions about the showcase or submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get more news and updates!
With best wishes,
On behalf of the PSRS Organising Committee
A good (and free!) resource for PhD students to know about is the University Condor Pool. Condor is the software layer that lets you run High Throughput Computing (HTC) jobs across tens or even hundreds of processor cores. Broadly speaking, HTC means that the same code runs on all the processors but each with different data. For example, a large data set can be broken up for analysis in parallel.

If you want help or just to discuss if your research can be helped by Condor, please contact me:
