## Context
The Work in Progress (WIP) meetings provide an informal and constructive forum for researchers to get feedback on planned imaging projects from a diverse WIN audience. WIPs are scheduled as part of the WIN Wednesday meetings that take place on Wednesdays 12:00 - 13:00, everyone who is affiliated with the WIN is welcome to attend these meetings.

## What to expect from a WIP Presentation
## 1. What to expect from a WIP Presentation
WIPs are an informal meeting and should be viewed as a positive opportunity for feedback from your peers. WIP attendees are reminded that discussions should be constructive, welcoming, accessible, and at all times in accordance with the [University policies on bullying and harassment]( We are all reminded that you are the expert on your topic, and we are here to support you based on our own experience. As WIP organisers, we welcome your feedback on your experience of planning and presenting your WIP, so we can improve the experience for others,
## Why should I do a WIP presentation?
## 2. Why should I do a WIP presentation?
- To help you optimise the quality of your research
- To encourage you to think early about the reproducibility of your research and opportunities to share your materials.
- To encourage collaboration among WIN members, by creating opportunities to hear about the work others are doing in all disciplines.
The WIP is not a box ticking exercise, or a test. It is a way to share planned work or work in early stages with your WIN peers. A WIP presentation can provide you with valuable feedback from the amazing WIN community, who are all here to support you in doing the best research you can.

## When should I present a WIP?
## 4. When should I present a WIP?
It is best to give a WIP presentation as **early as possible** in your project. This will enable you to receive and incorporate valuable feedback effectively. WIPs must be completed minimally 2 weeks before planned data collection for new MRI projects. You can present ideas for planned projects before data collection, or ethics approvals.
You are welcome to present more than one WIP. For example you could present an idea before collecting pilot data, or accessing shared datasets for analysis projects (e.g. UK Biobank), and then present again after data collection, or analysis has started, but not progressed very far. Any time you give a WIP presentation you should be at a stage where you are willing and able to incorporate feedback from the attendees.
## What should I present at a WIP?
