An exciting new initiative is being launched by the Fields Institute in collaboration with TEDxUofT.
On April 18, 2017, Fields will hold an inaugural thesis competition for PhD students in the mathematical sciences at our Principal Sponsoring Universities and Affiliate Universities in Ontario.
The goal is to strengthen academic and research communication skills among our doctoral candidates. Presenters will be expected to effectively explain their research within three minutes in a way conducive for understanding by a non-specialist. All students will receive a participation prize, and the top students will have the opportunity to expand their three minute presentation into a TEDx talk at a TEDxUofTSalon later this year.
Full details about the program and a link to REGISTER can be found HERE. The deadline to register is March 26, 2017.
