What is the IMG PhD Conference?
The IMG PhD Conference is a traditional event organized by PhD students and their representatives. They put together the programme, find sponsors, design the souvenirs and, most importantly, speak at the event themselves.
Why attend the conference?
The event offers young researchers the opportunity to try out presenting their progress to date at a professional level – without the fear and nervousness that can come with presenting at large conferences.
Every year, distinguished guests from the Czech Republic and abroad also speak at the meeting. The so-called keynote speaker presents the results of their work, while the speaker for the Career development section provides students with practical information for a successful start of a scientific career.
At the end of the conference, the audience chooses the best speaker and poster author who will receive a financial award from IMG.
The formal part of the event will be followed by a networking afterparty with refreshments. In addition to the students and their supervisors, the aforementioned guests traditionally attend.
