Graduate School Postgraduate Researcher Conference
The University of Northampton Graduate School are holding their annual Postgraduate Researcher Conference on June 27th 2013 and would like to invite staff, research students and supervisors to join them. The conference provides an ideal development opportunity for new researchers to present their research, discuss and share good practice with others in a non-threatening environment. The conference will showcase the diverse range of research activity within the University and will provide an excellent opportunity for research students to practice their presentation skills.
Any UN postgraduate research students and early career researchers who wish to present their research should email a title and an abstract (ca. 150 words), outlining their research and its context, to Simone Apel by Monday June 3rd. Any students wishing to chair a session (or sessions) should also email Simone.
Researcher’s presentations will be 10 minutes long, with 5 minutes allocated for questions and we expect to have about 16 sessions running throughout the day, with lunch. For students wanting help with planning their presentations, Prof. Ian Livingstone and Simone Apel are running a conference skills workshop on May 7th at 11am.
Conference registration is open to anyone wishing to attend, rather than contribute. Please register your interest to help us plan the day.
