Conference – PhD symposium at SOAC 2013 (Sydney, UTS)

26 Apr


A fantastic opportunity for all PhD students involved in Urban research. Within the SOAC 2013 conference (State of the Australian Cities) there will be a PhD Research Symposium on the urban, here at UTS! Below a brief description, while here you can find all the details.

The symposium will be held at the University of Technology, Sydney campus adjacent to the CBD, and is organised jointly by the City Futures Research Centre at UNSW and the School of Built Environment at the University of Technology, Sydney.

All PhD students conducting research related to cities and urban issues are invited to share their research and get constructive feedback from senior academic mentors and PhD student colleagues. The symposium will be comprised of intensive study modules in small groups with plenary sessions and presentations from academic mentors.

It will require active participation from the PhD participants, including presentations of research issues related to their theses.

Student applicants are to submit an abstract of 300 words regarding their research, which indicates the title, topic, research question, brief review of the issues, research design, methods, and what stage of their PhD student career they are in.

    Hi Michele-

    I’m a bit confused by the submission dates on this, which would be a fantastic thing to do. However, the symposium info lists April 23 as the deadline for submission of abstracts.

    Can you shed any light on this? There doesn’t seem to be an e mail address for these sorts of inquiries on the site either.
