PubhD Dublin is a monthly, free event that brings together PhD students from universities & colleges from all over Ireland across a range of disciplines to share their work in ten-minute presentations, with an additional 20 minutes for friendly questions and answers. Masters, undergraduates and general public usually join too because it’s good fun. We currently have PubhD in four locations in Ireland. There is currently PubhD events in Dublin, Galway, Cork & Waterford. PubhD was established by two non-academics working in Nottingham during 2014, since then its network has expanded to over 20 cities, across five different countries. It is a fantastic opportunity to share your research with a non-specialist audience, to test new ideas ahead of a conference, and to meet students from the other universities. So what do you need to present your research?

Is it possible to quickly and efficiently retrieve similar images from a dataset of 1M (or more) images?
by Federico Magliani, PhD student at the University of Parma (PubhD Dublin, January 2019) The problem is trivial for humans thanks to experience and semantic perception, but not for computers. This is known as semantic gap, which refers to the difference between low-level image pixels and high-level semantic concepts. Another relevant problem lies in the images themselves, […]

PubhD Dublin Story
PubhD Dublin was launched on April 1st 2015, at the Stag’s Head pub in Dublin city centre, by Dr Rebecca O’Neill. Despite a modest crowd of approximately 15 people, PubhD Dublin would grow month-by-month to become a popular monthly event for PhD students, professionals and research enthusiasts alike. It would also lay the groundwork for a network of PubhD events across the country and the to formation of PubhD Ireland. In 2016, a new team of three researchers and students took on the responsibility of organizing PubhD, and are still doing so to this day.
PubhD Dublin over its past three years has been host to some of the top researchers in the country, as well as international speakers. We have heard possibly the most diverse range of research topics from English Literature to Astrophysics, Religion and the latest in Nano-medicine by a host of speakers from various universities and institution. Each month bringing new and wonderful ideas, providing great thought provoking for the audience to discuss. We would like to thank the speakers and audience who have supported us throughout the years, and we hope to see the PubhD community continue to thrive.
