The annual lifETIME CDT Twitter Conference will take place from 9-10 June 2022. The conference will take place entirely over twitter using the hashtag #TCESxCDTs and will feature presentations from our 2nd year lifETIME students.
Each student will present during an allocated 30 minute slot across 3x tweets and will provide the audience with an overview of their research.
The conference will be interactive throughout so we encourage people to engage with talks across the two day conference.
