Annual RIMS Conference: 4-6 June 2020, Leuven (BE)
PhD Student Session
We, as PhD students, contribute with a great amount of research within our field, and in this session we will unify all this knowledge. You will have the opportunity to present your research idea, to share new data, or simply to get a status on research activities. A number of senior researchers will act as an expert panel and contribute with great inputs to this interactive session.
As a young researcher networking is important, and you will also have the opportunity to network with fellow PhD students as well as the senior researchers. Who knows, you may kickstart a new collaboration or get the perfect idea for a Postdoc project.
Information on the participants is posted here below.   


The pre-liminary programme will be published soon. 

Guidelines for presentations 8-10 minutes presentation, preferably including:

  • A short presentation of you and your educational background
  • Presentation of your PhD project (ideas, study design, results, challenges in your PhD…)
  • Perspectives and introduction to discussion/interaction with the expert panel
5-7 minutes feedback/discussion:
  • Inputs from the expert panel and fellow PhD Students
In addition, we are planning an educational part. The presenter and specific topic is to be announced, but we are hoping to get some inputs from a biostatistician on one of the important (yet challenging) parts of a PhD study: Biostatistics and how to handle outliers. More information will come, but make sure to register so you don't miss this interactive session.
