The event is the centrepiece and showcase of our research students’ academic year, intellectually and socially, and brings together the School community in an important and dynamic way.
Presentations (which must not exceed the stated time) should be aimed at a non-specialist audience, since they will be presented to other postgraduate research students, along with members of staff from across the sections of the School. The paper does not need to be a finished piece of work. The intention is that this exercise should be useful to you as Research Students, both in terms of clarifying your own ideas and gaining more experience of presenting them, and in allowing you to benefit from the questions and comments of those in attendance.
There will be prizes – awarded by an audience ballot – for the best presentations.
