CYCLE 31:  In April 2019 there is the last, ultimate, deadline of the last students of Cycle 31 for presenting the final version of the dissertation. You have to check whether the evaluators and the committee of your examination is ready and Рif not Рwork with your supervisor to fill the gaps and send them to and See the actual list of examination committees here: ESAMIFINALI31.

CYCLE¬†32: ¬†Before September 10 2019¬†‚Äď Ph.D. students of Cycle 32¬† should submit a report (FINO-REPORT) about the work done in the last year specifying¬†whether their dissertation is ready to be sent to the evaluators (the relation may be uploaded on the “bacheca” in your FINO web page).
Keep in touch with your supervisors to check that everything is all right! If you think that your dissertation is ready,  give it to your supervisor. They will judge whether to send it to the evaluators. Your supervisor may ask for a 6 months delay (until March 2020) if the dissertation is not ready, before sending it to two external evaluators. The evaluators will have 1 or 2 months time for sending the official assessment. They may ask for minor or major revision Рin this second case, you will be given another 6 months time.
