PhD student showcase locations

School of Computing PhD candidates will showcase their research online, on, on Wednesday 24 November, from 2pm to 4pm.

22 Computing PhD candidates will present their work in the virtual environment, where attendees will be able to ‘walk’ around the room and engage with the presenters. Attendees and participants can also vote for their 3 favourite posters or presentations during the event using the virtual voting booth. The top 3 presenters will each receive an Amazon voucher.

The showcase will start at 2pm with a few introductory words, then each presenter will have a dedicated 10-minutes slot during which attendees will be able to find them in front of their poster.
