Thesis Examiners Nominations

When it comes to the examination, if you are a current HDR supervisor at the School of Computing, please note that the following rules are applied within CECC when it comes to nominating examiners. Please see the ANU HDR Procedure: Submission and Examination of Theses here.

  • We require 3, not just 2 examiners to prevent frequent issues with non-timely return of the reports or conflicting results. We think that it is in the students and our best interest to have three.
  • We can only accept clearly non-conflicted examiners who have supervised students before and are publishing actively and where there was no publication with any of the panel members in the last 5 years (or ideally longer). Generally it’s also better for the student as they don’t need to argue that there was no CoI in the context of their thesis examination. This excludes but is not limited to the following:
  • Joint paper with student or panel member in last five years
  • Joint recipient of a grant with student or panel member in last five years Supervisor / supervisee relationship ever
  • Close personal relationship with student or panel member
  • Financial or other interest in research results
  • Employment at institution involved in research
