- This is an excellent way for our PhD-students to show off what they are up to. In addition, it is a very good and fun way to get to know each other. You meet, listen, discuss, and share your research experience with others.
A total of about forty PhD-students from the department participated and they were able to take part in a huge program. During the day there were inspiring presentations, posters and mingling with PhD-students from the department's different divisions.

They were awarded for their presentationsThe best poster award was given to Zakir Hussain Shaik of the division of Communication Systems with the motivation: "A very clear poster presentation describing a new and interesting approach in the field of wireless communications."
The prize for best oral presentation was awarded to Daniel Arnström, the division of Automatic Control, and his presentation "Towards real-time certified linear MPC".
The jury's motivation was: "With a clear oral presentation and accompanying visuals, Daniel guided the audience from trial and error to an optimization-based approach, which significantly reduced the number of trials and reduced the time to find the appropriate solution to the problem".
