Research² PhD Data Analysis Conference designed by PhD students, for PhD students

April 1, 2011

The PhD students of the Department of Information Science are pleased to announce the Research Squared conference will take place on Thursday 7th July and Friday 8th July 2011 supported by The Higher Education Academy UK.

The central theme of this year’s conference is data analysis and there are currently still a number of slots open for student speakers and poster presentations – an ideal opportunity to present your work to a broad range of PhD students from the fields of Library and Information Science, Computer Science and Social Science. If you do not want to present but would like to attend you are encouraged to register as soon as possible, details on how to do that will be announced soon.

Besides PhD-speakers we are putting together an exciting program of expert speakers, workshops, group reviews and a panel discussion. The conference will provide:

  • a platform for learning about traditional and contemporary data analysis;
  • a stimulating blend of expert speakers and student experiences to facilitate critical thinking in regard to data analysis;
  • theoretical and practical insights into data analysis;
  • a poster competition with prizes;
  • a fantastic opportunity to meet, collaborate and engage with other PhD students in your field.

The conference is free of charge to delegates. More information will be made available as soon as possible via this blog, alternatively you can follow @R2LU on Twitter (or use hash-tag #R2LU to find others attending) or search for our group on Facebook – Research Squared 2011 Loughborough University.
