Thesis forum: spring dates

Spring by promanex.

The thesis forum returns for the spring!

Come along and meet researchers from all disciplines and all stages of the PhD. The March session will focus on the APG upgrade and we will hear from three researchers who successfully passed. There will also be the chance to find out more about Leicester’s very own research magazine Frontier and plenty of time for informal discussion.

For the first time, off-campus students will also be able to participate in the thesis forum. You simply need to click this link on 19th March from 3pm (GMT) to take part. You will be able to see and hear the speakers plus put your own questions to them.

Date: Tuesday 19th March
Time: 3.30-5pm 
*Off-campus students are encouraged to log on from 3pm so we can check your settings.
Venue: Attenborough 002

John Coxon (Physics)
Pete Hague (Astrophysics)
Nate Owen (Education)

If you would like to attend please email Helen 

The webinar will use Adobe Connect. You will not need any specific software, however, you will need speakers or a headset to hear the webinar, and you can participate in discussion by typed chat.
Adobe Connect works fine on Windows and Macs, and any browser. Use with a Linux computer may be possible but is not recommended due to uncertain results. If you have any technical problems, email Terese Bird 
For best results, follow these steps:
1) Make sure any required equipment is physically plugged into your computer first, then launch your browser and go to:
2) Select Enter as Guest, type your name, and click Connect. It may take a minute or so for Adobe Connect to load up, and you will be in the meeting room.
3) Under 'Meeting' at the upper left, select Audio Setup Wizard. Go through the wizard, making sure everything works. Please note that Audio Setup Wizard should be done every time you come into a meeting.
It is a good idea to try these steps in advance of the webinar.  Note: If you would like to access the webinar on an iPad download the Adobe Connect app from the online Apple store.
Look forward to seeing you at the event on campus or via webinar online.
