Student team help steer EAAP 2016 to success
A team of PhD students from universities across the UK, Ireland and France have been praised for their part in helping to run the EAAP2016 conference in Belfast.
The group of 30 students were on-hand throughout the five-day event to help with everything from delegate registration, to providing information, offering technical support during sessions and making sure events run smoothly.
They were easily spotted around the Waterfront Conference Centre by their distinctive purple gilets.
During the conference gala dinner at Belfast’s Titanic Centre on Wednesday, BSAS president Liam Sinclair said the students had played a vital role in helping the conference run so smoothly.
“They have been here from 7am every morning to give their help wherever it was needed,” he said. “It’s fair to say the event wouldn’t have gone so well without them.”
Incoming EAAP president Matthias Gauly also took the opportunity to thank the group during his first address to delegates as president, praising them for their hard work.
