Together with PIM Director Prof. Ajantha Dharmasiri, Dr. Nilakshi Galahitiayawa, Dr. Gayan Jayakody Dr. A. K. L. Jayewardena and Prof. J.A.S.K. Jayakody played a key role in making this colloquium a reality.

The colloquium was a great opportunity fordoctoral candidates to presenttheir research proposals inorder to receive critical and constructive feedback from an expert panel.
