  • Improve the quality and visibility of ongoing research in the department
  • Create a networking opportunity between participants
  • Create a platform for easy sharing of ideas and feedbacks among peer researchers

This event will also serves as a rehearsal for the final year doctoral candidates and near future conference attendees.
