This year’s Colloquium will take place Thursday May 3rd and Friday May 4th, 2018 and will be held at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. The Colloquium is an important event on the DPES calendar. It provides a forum for our community to catch-up on all the exciting work being conducted by our labs and doctoral students; and provides an important opportunity for our students to practice presentation, communication, and public speaking skills.
