Organizing Committee of the Postgraduate Research Day 2010:
A total of 120 participants registered for the event which included SBS postgraduate students, principle investigators, teaching staff, research staff and also non-SBS members. 45 posters had been displayed to compete for different poster and oral presentation prizes. More than 120 students, staff and external scholars had visited the posters; 107 participants joint our lunch session and 96 participants registered for the afternoon oral presentation session. As highlighted in our Director’s welcome message, the main purpose of the Research Day was to provide “a platform on which our students can display their creativity and hard-work, share their achievements with their peers, and showcase their talent”. The Postgraduate Research Day 2010 had genuinely served this purpose.
Adjudicators were invited from among our principal investigators of the five research themes to select ten best posters in the morning session. Student members were also invited to select 4 posters as the posters of Student’s Choice.
