Aim to support the growth of young talents 



The Doctoral Consortium will take place on Thursady July 6th  2023. There is no extra fee to participate in the symposium but you are required to register for the conference.

The  Doctoral Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present and develop their research in an interdisciplinary workshop, facilitated by a panel of senior researchers:

and visualisation skills and techniques rather than standard presentations. We invite students who
feel this kind of experience will serve to progress their dissertation journey to apply for this unique
opportunity to share and develop their work with students and staff.

Submissions should not exceed 4 pages and should contain the following information;
(i) stage of Ph.D.
(ii) statement of research problem/objective
(iii) summary of closely related prior research
(iv) research method used or planned
