The ICO NSS: ICO’s national networking event

The ICO National Spring School (NSS) is a biennial, two-day networking event for all ICO Members: PhDs, Staff and Post Docs.

  • meet kindred research spirits during the Meet-your-Theme Group-session; 
  • informally catch up with long lost colleagues at the conference dinner; 
PhD project presentations
The focus of the National School is on the proejcts of the ICO PhD-candidates. PhD's are given the opportunity to present their work, either in a Junior Presentation (for 1st and 2nd year candidates) or in a Senior Presentation (3rd or 4th year candidates). The Junior Presentation can be either a Poster Presentation, or a Round Table Session. The Senior Presentation is a Paper Presentation. Coming November, you will be able to find more information about how to prepare for the presentation sessions on the website.
