***CALL FOR PAPERS***
The THESIS FORUM is an informal meeting in the Library for Postgraduate Research Students to share tips on the practice of researching and writing a PhD thesis. Whether you're in Arts or Sciences, a UK or International student, waiting for your APG upgrade or close to submission, you all have one aim in common: to survive the process of getting your PhD and emerge from it successful and unscathed!
The THESIS FORUM would like to hear short presentations of up to 15 minutes on your experiences of research so far. Here are some suggestions for topics, but we would like to hear presentations on anything that is important to the life of a postgraduate researcher:
• Getting started
• Supervisor issues
• The APG
• Studying away from home
• Staying motivated
• Finding sources
• Balancing research with everyday life
• Finishing the thesis
• Getting published
• Coping with research setbacks
Whatever your journey has been, even if you’ve only just started, the FORUM would like to hear from you.
The forum includes time for discussion and tea as well as presentations, providing a space where you can network with researchers from all disciplines.
Please send your expressions of interest to Emma (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1st November 2010.
