This mini-conference celebrates ten years of the OII's Summer Doctoral Programme. Comprising a one-day mini-conference with reception and dinner, this is a great opportunity for SDP alumni to reunite, present their research, and relive the SDP experience.

This mini-conference is a celebration of the OII’s Summer Doctoral Programme, which marks its tenth anniversary this year. Kicking off with a panel event on the evening of the 12th, followed by a one-day mini-conference, this event is an opportunity for past participants to reunite and relive the SDP experience, presenting papers on their current research to peers old and new.

Application is open to any past members of the OII’s Summer Doctoral Programme, however space is limited so we may give priority to those who apply early, and who have new research to present. Students attending the 2012 SDP will automatically be invited to attend.
