During this two-day event, the selected participants will present their PhD research for 30 minutes each, and then it will be discussed and peer-reviewed by an international panel (composed of senior researchers and post-docs) for another 30 minutes.

The presentations can include the now traditional formats such as Powerpoint, Prezi, etc., but the organisers would particularly welcome other kinds of contributions such as exhibitions, performances, etc. Depending on the number of participants that are selected, parallel sessions will be organised if necessary.

It is preferable that all participants attend the full weekend, including the Friday evening keynote and the Monday morning session on research methods for PhDs and supervisors as the conference is framed as a collective experience that will be important for the learning process and for networking.
