Interdisciplinary Speed Talks

March 22, 2018; IAB 1510

The Interdisciplinary Speed Talks consists of a set of graduate students or full-fledged researchers delivering very short presentations (4-5 min) on an ongoing project they’re working on, ideally one that they wish to collaborate on with people from other disciplines. This is a great way to learn about current research being done at different fields, get exposed to completely new methods, and learn about exciting new datasets.

Registration is now open (to give a talk or just listen): very short registration form here.

Interdisciplinary PhD Workshop in Sustainable Development (IPWSD)

April 6-7, 2018

The IPWSD is a workshop open to students working on, or interested in issues relating to sustainable development. It is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss research in an informal setting, as well as to meet and interact with similar young researchers from other institutions. In particular, we hope to facilitate a network among students pursuing in-depth research in one or several disciplines, whether quantitative or qualitative in focus, to generate a larger interdisciplinary discussion concerning sustainable development.

Open to Admitted Applicants
