The RDM Annual Symposium will be held on Monday 23 March 2020, at the Mathematical Institute (Radcliffe Observatory Quarter).

Registration is now open, and all RDM staff and students are encouraged to attend. Registration closes Friday 13 March

Call for posters

Part of the day will be devoted to a poster session where students and postdocs/fellows, based in research groups within RDM, can present their research in a poster format.

The call for poster abstracts is now open and the abstract template is now available.

Abstracts will be reviewed and the best abstracts selected for poster presentation at the symposium.

The abstract submission deadline is noon on Monday 24 February 2020.
Please email abstract templates to communications@rdm.ox.ac.uk

Guidelines for submitting an abstract
• Please use the abstract template and submit as a Word document (not PDF).
• Limit your abstract to one page only (with normal margins, including references and any images).
• Give the title of your abstract, followed by authors’ names and affiliations.
• Give affiliations in the following format: 1 Division/Institute, Department, University, Country.
• Underline the presenting author.
• Indicate if the presenting author is a DPhil student or postdoc/fellow.
• Limit the main text of your abstract to approximately 250 words, Calibri font size 11.
• Include the rationale for the research (written for a non-specialist audience), methodology, results and conclusions in the main text.
• If necessary, you can include a figure or graphical abstract (but you must not exceed the one page limit).
• Select a maximum of three RDM research themes that your abstract is relevant to (see the abstract template).

Please note that as we are limited in the number of posters we can display, we would suggest that no more than 2-3 abstracts are submitted per research group.

Any questions should be directed to Kathleen Dolan (kathleen.dolan@rdm.ox.ac.uk or (2)31458). 

You will be notified if your abstract has been selected, two weeks before the symposium.

There will be a prize for the best student poster and the best postdoc/fellow (non-student) poster.
