Our Postdoc reps are working together to organise events that are specific to postdocs at Imperial. These events can range from departmental lunches to interdisciplinary Sandpits to CV clinics. Why not get involved and join in by having a look below at the upcoming events taking place across the College that have been organised by your reps. We look forward to welcoming you at an event soon. Links to register for events can be found in the latest version of the newsletter.

If you would like your department to hold a similar event that is being held in a different department or have any additional suggestions, please contact your rep or pfdc-support@imperial.ac.uk and we will see what we can do.

DoC RA Symposium: 22nd June 2018, Department of Computing, http://wp.doc.ic.ac.uk/postdoc/ra-symposium-2018/

We welcome contributions, theoretical and practical, from any area of computer science. We also greatly encourage contributions from any other scientific discipline that could benefit from and build on state-of-the-art computing methodologies to define and solve new research questions.

We are open to all scientific disciplines and welcome researchers from all departments, including (but not limited to) Medicine, Natural Sciences and Engineering. We invite RAs to share their problems, solutions and ideas to foster collaborations both among groups and between departments.

If you would like to present your work in this symposium, please submit your abstract (100 to 500 words) to DoC RA reps (doc-ra-reps@imperial.ac.uk) by Tuesday 22th May 2018. The format of the talks (20+5 minutes) is semi-formal and there will not be formal proceedings; work-in-progress talks are especially welcome. All submissions will receive feedback from us before the symposium.

If you feel unsure about the scope of your research to the call for contributions above, please don't hesitate to contact us (doc-ra-reps@imperial.ac.uk) so that we can help you.
