Call for papers: present your research at UoN’s new Research Conference!

PGR conference 2016

The Graduate School Research Conference 2016

We are pleased to invite University of Northampton research students and staff to take part in the UoN Research Conference in June 2018. Unlike before, this year’s conference is organised jointly by The Graduate School and the Faculties in an enlarged two day conference, which will run from 20th to 21st June 2018 and offer a chance for researchers to present a paper or a poster. Postgraduate researchers can also enter into a 3-minute thesis competition and win a prize!  The Call for Papers is now open and the deadline for abstracts is now Thursday 26th April.

Chetak poster EMDocResearchers are welcome to participate in one (or more!) of the following categories – an oral paper or a poster presentation and, if you are a postgraduate researcher, you can enter our second 3 Minute Thesis competition. The aim of this joint conference is to provide a platform for UoN research students and staff to showcase their research and receive valuable feedback.  It is a chance for novice and experienced researchers to present to an academic audience and to communicate their research to people beyond their immediate discipline. Our conferences have always been a friendly environment for this development and offer a valuable opportunity for visitors to network and gain insights into current research at UoN.

The themes for the conference will be loosely grouped around the University’s new strategy – Social Impact; Super-Supportive; Future Focused.

If you are an offsite postgraduate researcher you can still take part even if you cannot attend the conference. We are having a special exhibition of off-site posters and recorded 3-MTs. So why not submit an abstract for a research poster or recorded 3-Minute Thesis for the conference. Please see the call for papers for offsite students.

Important dates to note:
Deadline for abstract: Thursday April 26th 2018
Notification of acceptance: by 14th May 2018
