A key thread to the Dream CDT is the provision of appropriate experience for the Dream students in presenting publicly and over a couple of days, in conference format, the research projects underway, with all the discourse that follows. We have just met to hold the first of the annual Symposia for Dream at Newcastle University. This permits each of the students the opportunity to present their work and receive questions, all amongst other presentations from leading academics from the participating universities, from the international advisory board, and from our industrial partners. This has led to a fantastic environment of learning for the students, as well as an important opportunity to help build the community of Dream. We will run the symposium every year as our numbers grow, being an important milestone in the progress of Dream.
