The PhD Day was a great success and enjoyed by everyone. Thanks to all presenters!

The first semi-regular MoCA PhD day will be held on Tuesday, the 22nd of November. It is an opportunity for PhD students within MoCA to present their research, and let everyone know what kind of science they are involved in. It will run for the majority of the day and consist of a series of talks each of approximately 15 minutes + 5 minutes for questions.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
