CALL FOR PAPERS AND INVITATION TO ATTEND POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH CONFERENCE, SATURDAY 24th JUNE 2017
The Graduate School, Plymouth Institute of Education and The Institute of Health and Community are holding their postgraduate research conference on Saturday 24th June 2017, 9-5pm. The conference will take place on the 6th Floor of Rolle, Drake Circus campus.
A Conference for Postgraduate Researchers
This conference is open to postgraduate researchers on the following programmes: EdD, MPhil, PhD, Masters and MA thesis stage. It will enable you to share your work in progress, provides a supportive and constructive space for postgraduates to present their work and will be a great networking opportunity. This call for papers allows us to plan the programme in advance of the conference.
You can either choose to give a verbal presentation (standard presentation to an audience (20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions)), submit a poster (high quality poster to be displayed during the course of the conference, no verbal presentation) or submit a round table discussion topic (lead a group discussion around a topic of your choice, 5-10 minutes of introduction then chair the discussion).
The day will also include a keynote presentation by Professor Mike Bottery, a student led session and a panel discussion, which will provide networking, collaboration and engagement opportunities.
If you would like to present a verbal presentation, submit a poster or round table discussion topic, please complete the registration form you've been sent and send it, along with a 150-200 abstract and a brief biography of 50-100 words, to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day on Friday 31st March 2017. You are advised to ask your director of studies/supervisors to help with this. Verbal presentations should be approximately 20 minutes, plus up to 10 minutes for questions (to be confirmed). PowerPoint facilities will be available. There will be time in the programme for poster viewing and informal discussion with poster presenters.
PhD Students in the first or second year of study are encouraged to give a verbal presentation and those in their second or third year are also invited to host a round table discussion.
EdD students at any stage can give verbal or RT presentations, but those undergoing the RDC2 transfer process should use this opportunity to do a verbal presentation as part of the requirements for this process.
All supervisors will be invited and some of them will be chairing paper sessions.
The event is free to attend. Anyone who would like to present and/or attend the conference is required to register.
