Managing Your Data (Engineering RDC) Finished 11:00 - 12:00 West Hub, West Room 1

There is an increased emphasis on managing and sharing data produced in research. Many of the research funders supporting work at the University of Cambridge require that research data are openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

Research data management is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle at the end of the project; when preparing your data for a publication or writing up your thesis. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

This session aims to help you get started with managing your data by introducing you to key principles around organising, storing, archiving and sharing your data. You will also learn how to create your own Data Management Plan.

Mon 22
Presentation Skills (Open to All & Computer Science Part II Students) new Finished 14:00 - 15:00 West Hub, West Room 2

Presentations are a key way to share your research/work and the ability to present well is an important skill in terms of future employment both within the professional or academic fields.

This session is Open to All and also designed to support Computer Science Part II students in preparation for their Individual Presentations. We will focus on helping you to let your key points stand out, how to design use/design slides and/or accompanying resources well and presenting with confidence and clarity.

If you would like to attend this session but are not a member of the University of Cambridge then please email techlib@lib.cam.ac.uk to reserve your place.

Designing Conference Posters (Engineering RDC) Finished 16:00 - 17:00 Department of Engineering, Library, North Room

onference posters are a simple, visual, and effective way of sharing your research. They may be presented at academic or professional conferences, Departmental events, or educational events for the general public. A well-designed poster allows you to communicate information about your work in a concise and appealing manner, and engage with colleagues, peers and others in a conversational setting.

Creating a conference poster is a balancing act between including enough detail to effectively describe your work, and keeping it visually attractive and minimal enough that people can understand at least the main points at a glance.

This module will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.
