The third annual MoCA PhD Day will be held on 29 November in rooms G29 & G30 in the New Horizons building (physics seminar room).
It is a day long event where the students of MoCA present their work and the research they are involved in. Talks are scheduled for 15 minutes + 5 minutes for question afterwards. As well, sessions on effective paper writing techniques and how to referee a paper are planned.
There will be refreshments and lunch provided throughout the day, and a social event with some beer and chips at the end of the day.
