Special Student Research Seminar (EMI 2017 Conference practice)

What? Special Student Research Seminar (EMI 2017 Conference practice)

When? Thursday June 1st

5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Where? Newmark Room 1311

Even though we are in the summer period, we know that a good amount of you is sticking around. For this reason, from SEGSO we want to host a special Student Research Seminar as a practice session for the upcoming EMI 2017 Conference. We know that many us would like to hear more about fellow student projects, what they are, and how they are doing. Additionally, this will allow you to give a dry run to your presentation in a relaxed environment, and get feedback from your fellow graduate students. The idea of the seminar is that each student can talk for about 10-15 minutes (using a PowerPoint presentation or any other tool he or she might find useful) and then allow some room for questions.

Of course, everyone is welcome to attend the presentations! We just want to give preference in presenting to students participating in the aforementioned conference.

Pizza will be provided!

If you are interested, please let us know by emailing segso.uiuc@gmail.com.
