The Annual Fourth Year Conference will be held on Saturday, 22nd September 2012, from 8.30am - 5.30pm. All students enrolled in the individual thesis (PSYC4070 or PSYC4071) are required to present a short paper on their thesis topic at the Conference.
In all, there will be some 140 presentations throughout the day. Presentations will be grouped into streams reflecting the content of individual theses. The different streams will run concurrently in several different rooms, and the audience will be free to move about between streams throughout the day.
Some very useful tips and advice for the presentation may be found on page 32 of the Honours Handbook.
The Aims Of The Conference Are:
Students are expected to attend for the whole day to ensure that all presenters have an audience. Lunch, morning tea & afternoon tea will be provided. Registration will be required in the morning and again at afternoon tea.
Each presentation should be no more than 15 minutes in duration (note this is not a flexible limit - session chairs will adhere rigidly to this time limit).
The presentation will be followed by 5 minutes of question time. You can use any format that you like for the presentations - OHT projectors will be available in each room as well as data projectors (and computers) for those who prefer to use powerpoint. If you need any additional equipment please email email@example.com.
