Event description
Rottnest Summer School is back for 2020! We are very excited to share this opportunity with you! Spaces are very limited!

About this Event

Registrations are now open for the Rottnest Summer School for 2020! This year’s summer school will run over three days, from Monday, 10th until Wednesday, February 12th, 2020.

Rottnest Summer School is a fantastic opportunity for all of the postgrad students and academics in the School to come together for a short conference and getaway to beautiful Rottnest Island. This year it is all about learning and growing, continuing to get to know each other, building networks and socializing.

The summer school is generously supported by the School of Biological Sciences. Transport, accommodation and catering will be provided by the School and is a free event to students and staff.

Registration closes at 5.00 PM 6 December 2019. Please complete your registration right away (do it right now!) as spaces this year are limited.

This year we have four presentation styles for you to choose from: 3 minute thesis, 5 minute update talk, 10 minute conference-style talk or poster session. If you do not need to give a talk to complete one of your milestones, you may instead present a poster during an allocated session. Please note, a poster is NOT a substitute for a talk in terms of your milestones.

This is the first year that a poster session has been offered, and we strongly encourage people to consider this option if they are not required to give a talk. This will create much more space in the schedule for interesting guest speakers, workshops and, of course, more free time!

Please note, if you would like to register and attend the 2020 Summer School, it is expected that you will attend the full three days allocated to this event. By completing this registration, you are committing to attend the event. Any cancellations after the finalised date will incur accommodation and transportation costs and will be taken from your operating PG.

For students with extenuating circumstances (e.g. care for children, field trials, etc.), please contact Oliver Harrington (oliver.harrington@uwa.edu.au) to make arrangements, we may be able to accommodate a day trip to Rottnest but please, contact us to discuss this option. Only valid reasons will be considered.
