The GRADnet Induction Day was held at the Park Crescent Conference Centre in central London on Wednesday, 26 October. 115 postgraduate students attended the day and participated in 5 workshops:
Getting your research published: Simon Harris, IOP Publishing; LaTEX: Dr Paul Stevenson, University of Surrey; MATLAB: Prof Peter McDonald, University of Surrey; Python: Dr Timothy Kinnear, University of Kent and Organising meetings and conferences: Kay Pearson, Employability Advisor University of Surrey.
Professor Peter McDonald, GRADnet Director, gave an introduction to GRADnet and details of the free training opportunities available in this academic year.
This was an excellent opportunity for first year postgraduates to network with their SEPnet partners. One student reported that the speakers were “brilliant” and the event was “top notch”.
Cristobel Soares-Smith, GRADnet Administrator, said “this was one of the best attended events by physics postgraduates and I hope to see many of the attendees at future GRADnet residential schools and one-day workshops”.
