Oxbridge 2015 Meeting

Oxbridge Volcanology Student Meeting

Following the success of our 1 day meeting with the Oxford volcanology group last year, we have decided to repeat the endeavour, this time hosted by Oxford. The meeting aims to bring together various groups from Oxford and Cambridge universities to present research relevant to any aspect of volcanology. We hope that the  meeting provides a great opportunity not only to get to know each other better but also to present and discuss what different groups in the two universities do.

We have split the conference into two sessions; the first involves longer talks (15 minutes) with time for discussion in between aiming to give a flavour of what the different groups do. In the second session we are keen for all attendees to present for 5 minutes to introduce their topic of research, the aim being not necessarily to present finished research but to talk about what kind of questions you are trying to answer and what techniques you are using. For this second session we ask that presentations be limited to 5 slides only.

After the meeting we will head to the pub and then dinner at a restaurant nearby.
