PhD and MSc Students Forum

The PhD forum provides an opportunity for research students to show their original yet incomplete ‘work-in-progress’.

As a separate track of MLN, the PhD and MSc Students Forum aims at providing constructive feedback and guidance to students who are performing their dissertation research and to help them interact with established researchers and practitioners in their field.
