Internal conference for doctoral candidates geo_doc
First year PhD students present the results of their first year of research and provide an overview of the state of global knowledge on their topic as it relates to their research. Due to the nature of the content, the presentation is oral.
Second year PhD students present the results of their scientific research. The presentation can take the form of a poster or an oral presentation.
The first internal conference for PhD students was held in 2015 with 4 oral presentations. Over the years, the conference grew as shown in the graph below. In 2020, there were 10 oral and 5 poster presentations with about 40 participants. The conference was organised in two parallel sessions with two guest lecturers. The response from our PhD students has been very positive.
In addition, 2019/20 was the reaccreditation of the Doctoral study in Geography: space, region, environment, landscape, with geo_doc highlighted as an example of good practice.
This year's conference will be held at the Department of Geography on 9th of July 2021.
