PhD Workshop

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin annual PhD Workshop. The PhD Workshop is an event at which PhD students who are twelve to eighteen months from finishing their PhD present their research to date and their plans for the last year or so of their PhD. The talks take place in front of the staff and postgraduate research students of the department in a friendly, helpful atmosphere. Presenting at the Workshop is an integral part of the PhD process in the department; all students at the appropriate stage take part.
