Aninter-disciplinary research forum has been scheduled for Friday 10 May 2019, 3-5pm at Burlington Road. The forum is intended to be an informal event that provides post-doctoral scholars and PhD students with the opportunity to share and discuss their current research with scholars and staff from across the three schools of DIAS. There will be no main speakers at the event. Instead, participants will be assigned a space where they can share and discuss their research interests. Participants are encouraged to present a poster which visually complements their research, and allows them to explain what they do to all DIAS staff. In instances where a poster presentation is not appropriate, participants should feel free to develop an alternative approach. Posters should ideally be printed in A1 portrait format, as space is limited. The forum presents a great opportunity for scholars to sharpen their academic presentation and public outreach skills in an informal setting, while also getting to know colleagues from across the Institute. The organisers strongly encourage scholars from all three schools to participate in the forum. A coordinator from each section will liaise with participants regarding their presentations.
There will be a prize for the 'best' poster given on the day.
Participants are asked to register here prior to Wednesday 8 May.

While there is an obvious @DIASDunsink link, there is another #DIAS link to this event. Pictured on the right here you will see @TomRayDIAS with his daughter @Emma_Ray_Artist whose own flash of creativity won the commission in 2018.
What a day yesterday! Amazing autumnal sunshine for not only the Hamilton walk but the official unveiling of the new artwork commemorating William Rowan Hamilton's "eureka" moment at what is now Broombridge luas stop.
Wow! This image from an article published in August is from a group lead by Ruben Fedriani. It is a result of work undertaken while at DIAS is now a featured image on @NatureComms site! It is a striking.
Excellent work Ruben and team!
