The University of Northampton’s Annual Research Conference provides an ideal opportunity for all researchers to present their research and to discuss and share good practice with others in a supportive environment. We are offering researchers the opportunity to present online on Tuesday 21st June and on-campus (with synchronous live streaming) on Wednesday 22nd June.

If you do not wish to present but would like to help at the Conference, for example as a session Chair, then please also get in touch with Simone.

Building on last year’s successful conference, we are offering a variety of exciting ways to present your research and we are looking for researchers who are keen to submit one, or all, of the following:

  • Oral presentation/research paper (open to all researchers on both conference days): oral presentations should be 15 minutes long, with time allocated for questions after each presentation. [Please note that if we are over-subscribed for submissions and a single researcher submits multiple entries we will, where appropriate, ask the researcher to reduce the number of presentations as required]. Presentations will be placed in themed sessions once all entries are received.
  • Pecha Kucha 20:20 presentation (open to all researchers and live, on-campus Weds 22nd June. Originally developed in Japan, “Pecha-Kucha” is a presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total).
  • Three Minute Thesis© – 3MT competition (open to PGRs only and live, on campus Weds 22nd June): join the worldwide competition, started by the University of Queensland, and present your thesis in just 3 minutes with one slide! Competition prizes are available to win. If you are a PGR wishing to enter 3MT please note that the deadline for the submission of your 3MT slide is Friday 10th June. Send your slide to simone.apel@northampton.ac.uk.
  • Roundtable discussion (online on Tuesday 21st June). This will be an hour long session for Research Institutes, Centres or Groups – propose a themed session/roundtable discussion on the topic of your choice. Each roundtable will have one hour for their presentations. The sessions are yours to run as you wish and as Chair(s), you are responsible to oversee all proceedings.

Please check your eligibility to participate in each part of the conference (i.e. for PGR only competitions). If you wish to submit in one, or all, of these formats, please complete a separate form for each entry using this link. You will be asked to provide an abstract of 50-150 words for each application (abstract not required for 3MT, but a title of your proposed presentation is needed).

The closing date for entry forms is now midnight on 23rd May 2022.

Note: Publications and conference proceedings are not usually organised as part of internal university conferences. Our Conference is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your research and to support our research community. We would strongly encourage you to become involved!

Any questions regarding submissions or the Conference in general should be directed to: Simone.Apel@northampton.ac.uk
