UK Postgrad Fire Discussions
The University of Edinburgh are hosting a two day workshop on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th May 2018 for all PhD students, based at UK universities, who are working on fire-related research projects.
The intention is simply to share research ideas, stimulate discussion & collaboration, and build friendships & working relationships which will last far beyond your time in postgraduate study.
This is not a forum for presentations of research projects which have now concluded. We are seeking contributions from PhD students at all stages in their research projects - from those just setting out, to those writing up and struggling with those last bits of data analysis.
There will be a call for presenters in a few months time, but for now we want to get an idea of how many people want to come. So if you're interested, please fill in the webform below and we'll get back to you in a month or so with full details.
The workshop will be held in the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. There will be a fee for attendance, but this will be kept to the absolute minimum and will only cover the cost of refreshments and lunches. Exact price to be confirmed, once we have an idea of numbers, but it should be less than £50 per head. We do not intend to make a profit on this. We will also suggest some local accomodation for a range of budgets.
Assuming this fiery get-together is a success, there will be a similar workshop next year, hosted by Imperial College London. The intention is for the gathering to happen on an annual basis, moving around the UK from university to university. Maybe you can consider hosting in 2020 or beyond?
The workshop is open to all UK based fire researchers, students, academics, whatever. But only students currently registered on a course of PhD study will be giving presentations.
