2020 HDR Conference
HDR Conference Abstract Booklet
2nd and 3rd of July 2020, Webinar format
The HDR Conference is an annual event that brings together SoNM HDR students, along with their supervisors and interested staff, to present research projects, generate discussion, and provide an opportunity to network. It is one of the research highlights of the year in the SoNM. This year is a little different with the shift to an online webinar format. We hope that you enjoy the 3 minute presentations from students who are one or more years into their candidature. This year there will be four groups of student presentations with opportunities to ask questions after each group. Students are also invited to enter the three minute thesis competition (3MT) being held on the 16th July and represent the school at university level if they are successful. At the end of each day of the HDR conference we undertake the annual progress reports review where we can assess progress through candidature and look for areas where we need to support our students better. This book of abstracts will provide you with an insight into each students presentation at the 2020 HDR conference.
