STUDENT DAY

The Student Day will run on Sunday 5th July 2020, where the layout will take on a slightly different form then that of previous years. This year the day will start with a one hour lecture intended as a brief introduction to muon spectroscopy and the various global facilities. The students will then take over and the rest of the day will be made up of 15 minute (a 12 minute talk + 3 minutes for questions) talks given by individual students on topics relating to their PhD research and their use of muon spectroscopy to solve problems.

The preliminary time table will be as follows:

09:00 – 10:00      μSR tutorial

10:00 – 10:30      Student Talks

10:30 – 10:45      Coffee Break

10:45 – 12:15      Student Talks

12:15 – 13:15      Lunch

13:15 – 15:00      Student Talks 1

5:00 – 15:15      Coffee Break

15:15 – 16:30      Student Talks

Students are encouraged to submit abstracts for posters or oral presentations for the main conference. From these a few will be selected to also give an oral presentation on the Student Day. The Local Committee is actively seeking funds for student partial grants. All forms of student supports will be communicated later.
