Call For Participation |
We are happy to invite you to our 2nd annual College of Science
(CoS) Postgraduate Research (PGR) Student conference. One of our
goals is to foster a growing, vibrant community of PhD students
across the College. This community is a key dynamic in our drive
to be the most creative place to carry out science globally.
This is a great opportunity to practice your scientific
presentation skills, connect with your peers, disseminate your
research, and discover what fellow PhD candidates
are working on.
As part of this initiative, we invite you to participate in the
conference in one (or more) of three ways:
- Giving a Presentation:
All PhD students are invited to submit A 1-page abstract of their
research for presentation at the conference. The abstract can
describe your own original research results, work-in-progress,
literature review, work already published or more. These
presentations are open to all PhD students, however, they are
targeted at 2nd and 3rd+, students as preview for first year
students. We expect presentations to last 10-15 minutes depending
on the number submitted. Submission instructions are provided
below. Abstracts are not published and thus do not interfere with
any publication plans.
- Presenting a Poster:
We are offering all postgraduate research students the opportunity
to present a poster. A poster presentation is obligatory for PGR
students in the CoS with a start date in October 2018. However,
any PGR student may present a poster including those beyond
their first year. Your poster represents your research. It can be
work-in-progress research, about your literature review, what your
plans are etc. You may select any aspect of your research for your
poster or may give an overall outline of your project. Posters
are presented in a dedicated poster session in the afternoon
of the conference day.
- Help with Conference Organisation:
We are also looking for volunteers to take on an organisational
role for the conference. This can be chairing a presentation
session, helping with registration, taking photos, helping with
AV equipment, liaising with the venue, etc. Organizational roles
are open to all PhD students.
