Third Time’s the Charm! September 5 is the New Date for the OVCRD Colloquium and Fair 2012

After having been postponed twice – due to the President’s SONA (State of the Nation Address) and the monsoon rains – the OVCRD Colloquium and Fair 2012 is pushing through on 5 September 2012 (Wednesday), 8AM-5PM, at the National Institute of Physics.

This much-awaited event will still feature 17 paper presentations in the Colloquium, spread over four sessions (please click here for the Colloquium and Fair program). Likewise, attendees will still get to see UP Diliman’s Science and Technology exhibition for the 2012 National Science and Technology Week, alongside the exhibit of some of UP Diliman’s R&D partners. To add more excitement to the event, there will be two raffle draws during the Colloquium. For each draw, five sets of OVCRD journal issues will be given away as minor prizes and OVCRD publications pre-loaded in a tablet computer will be the grand prize.

Indeed, as the old saying goes, “third time’s the charm”, and on 5 September, participants can look forward to a day of sharing of information, insights and experiences among UP Diliman’s researchers and creative workers. In keeping with the spirit of Paliwanagan sa UP Diliman, this sharing is envisioned to result in stronger inter- and cross-disciplinary collaborations among researchers and creative workers in the campus.
