- Practice your preparation and presentation conference skills
- $2,500 in cash prizes will be awarded
Present a Paper
Student's presentations should provide a brief, interesting snapshot of their research. It should be targeted towards postgraduate who have no prior knowledge of your research field or topic and for this reason they should stay clear of too much technical detail. Please refer to the presentation criteria here.
Prizes will be awarded to the best presenting student from each school.
Awards for presentations will be judged by the Research Training Director of the relevant school and/or the sponsor of the prize.
