The MCR is happy to invite you to this year’s Conference on Everything! It will take place on April 27th 2013 in the Wolfson Hall. The poster session will be held in the SCR Corridor.
About the conference
The Conference on Everything is the pinnacle of academic life in College. Students are invited to present their research through talks and posters to an audience composed of the other Churchillians – students and fellows. Usually we invite a famous speaker with a connection with College for the keynote talk. Previous speakers have included: Iraqi Ambassador Salah Al-Shaikhly; Micheal Green; Julian Huppert, and David Spiegelhalter. A poster competition is held before dinner, and the best poster gets awarded the Alex Mischenko Prize.
This year’s keynote will be delivered by Prof Leader-Williams, who is the current director of Conservation Leadership. He is interested in applied ecology and endangered species management, law enforcement and illegal use of wildlife, and other interdisciplinary aspects of conservation: http://www.geog.cam.ac.uk/people/leader-williams/
That evening is the Advanced Students’ Dinner. All the graduate students are invited, and this is a great opportunity to dine with College fellows. This Conference is a great opportunity to practice giving academic presentations to an audience with varied backgrounds, and the width of subjects ranges from airport architecture to child migration in Ghana, guaranteeing interesting bits for everyone.
