The Postgraduate Conference (PGC) is annually held:
- to provide postgraduate students (PhD students in particular) a forum in which they can present their latest work and gain experience in conference presentation;
- to give students and staff members an opportunity to learn what other PhD students are working on; and
- to bring a sense of closure to the end of the academic year - a check point people can refer back to in order to assess the progress they have made.
Postgraduate students, second year or later, are required to give a talk. Details about the PGC 2003 will be announced later.
