Super Short Summaries

This year, the MCR is holding our first-ever Super Short Summaries on Saturday 30th April.

The two-minute thesis (2MT) competition will start at 6 pm and be followed by a prosecco reception at 7 pm, where attendees can talk to the presenters about their research and winners will be announced. Following the event, all postgraduate students are invited to the Advanced Students’ dinner.

Postgraduate students from Churchill college, both PhD and Masters students, are invited to register to present. Presenters will be allowed one slide (with no animations) and given 2 minutes to explain their research to a general audience. Presenters are expected to explain what their research is about, why it is interesting, and what they have found. Since it is aimed at a general audience, they need to assume at most a high school level of knowledge in their field, explain terminology, and avoid jargon. The talks will be judged by both Fellows and students, and prizes will be given for the best talks.

If you have any questions, or want to register to present, feel free to email Lorrie Jacob at mcr-academic@chu.cam.ac.uk
