The Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) is pleased to announce the 6th Clip Day!  

Clip Day 2024 is an in-person, residential, get-together / forum where Early Career Researchers (ECRs), PhD and Masters students can present 'clips' (or a snapshot) of their current and future work using overhead slides. It is also an opportunity to develop working relationships with ACNS / National Deuteration Facility (NDF) supervisors and to get to know peers and future collaborators. It will be a great place to meet old friends, make new ones and, hopefully, to have some fun!

Limited places will be offered to either:

  • present a 12-minute overview of your research with 3 minutes for questions OR
  • participate in a poster slam where you have 3 minutes to present one overhead slide summarising your research OR
  • participate in the poster session.
