Doctoral colloquium

The doctoral colloquium will be held on Tuesday, September 05 at the conference venue, commencing at 9.00 am. With generous support from UWA there will be NO additional charge for those students participating in the doctoral colloquium. However, (i) places are limited: a maximum of 18 and thus acceptance will be on a competitive basis; and (ii) participation in the doctoral colloquium will only be permitted where the student has registered as a delegate for the IMP in ASIA conference.

The aim of the IMP doctoral colloquium is to create a forum for in-depth and informal discussions between PhD students undertaking research in the IMP discipline and experienced IMP supervisors and researchers.
