Is it compulsory for students to present at the colloquium?

Yes. PBS thesis programme students are required to participate in the colloquium at least once during their study duration.

It is held every six months.
Can I still be a presenter even if I had presented in the previous colloquium?
Yes, you certainly can.
Can I register as a participant/presenter on the day itself?
