AMSIConnect (formerly Big Day In) is a two day residential conference for successful AMSI Vacation Research Scholars.
AMSIConnect gives all successful VRS scholars an experience presenting their work to a group of their peers. Attendees at the conference include all AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship students/scholars, as well as a select number of academic supervisors. Participants meet in Melbourne, Victoria to present their research projects, participate in a careers panel and attend networking events.
Each student delivers a 20-minute presentation, providing an overview of their AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship project, following a set template for slides. There is a Cambridge University Book Prize up for grabs, which is awarded each year the best AMSI student presentation, voted for by both peers and supervisors.
