Oxford Early-Careers Researchers Symposium – Event

yqpGMsJO_400x400The first ever “Early-Careers Researchers Symposium for Cybersecurity Research” in Oxford will be occuring on the 30th September 2015, and will be held in the Tony Hoare Room, Robert Hooke Building. The idea is to get students and postdocs into the same room, to learn what is going on across the university and present their new ideas in front of a friendly (but well-informed) audience.  There will even be prizes and lunch on offer.

There is also opportunity to present if you would like, as the aim is to showcase as many groups and departments as possible, whilst giving you a chance to test-drive your presentations before giving them at a conference or event.

The Current Agenda looks like this:
9:30-10:05 – Registration and Welcome
10:05-10:45 – Session 1: Security and the Social
10:45-11:30 – Panel 1: CyberSecurity – Hype or Real Threat?
11:30-11:45 – Coffee Break
11:45-12:30 – Session 2: Hardware and Software
12:30-13:30 – Lunch
13:30-14:30 – Session 3: Law, Politics and Policy
14:30-14:45 – Coffee Break
14:45-15:45 – Session 4: Comfort Zones and Jurisdictions

CRUK Oxford Symposium – Event


The 4th Annual Cancer Research UK (CRUK) symposium has been arranged, giving opportunity to showcase the breadth of activity across the Centre in Oxford, and highlight the cross-departmental or interdisciplinary partnerships supporting translational cancer research. Speakers will showcase their collaborative research in Oxford across a range of cancer related paired talks, making it a valuable day for all involved.

The Symposium is an ideal venue to network, and often sparks new opportunities for partnership. It provides a platform to highlight younger scientists through poster competitions, alongside presentations from Centre-funded students.

Registration for the Centre’s Annual Symposium is exclusive to Centre members, and registration for tickets, which includes access to the evening reception, is free. To participate in the day, 300 word Abstracts are requested covering Research background, methods, results, conclusions, acknowledgment of sources of funding or any conflicts of interest.

Date: 5th June 2015
Time: All Day
Location: Mathematical Institute – Oxford
