UON Annual Research Conference 2023 call for hosts and organisers
The University of Northampton’s Annual Research Conference is a 2-day conference run in June which gives UON researchers, from Postgraduate Researchers to Professors, an opportunity to present their research. Previous conferences have featured key notes, traditional paper presentations, posters, round table discussions and Pecha Kucha – 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds. Last year, one of the two days was organised as an online event to give PGRs studying off-site an opportunity to present their research. This was well-received, so for 2023 we would like to continue this format.
This year we are offering the conference organisation opportunity to a Faculty or group of Centres. The chosen group will set a (broad, inclusive) theme for the 2023 Conference, choose a lead organiser/s, convene a conference organising committee (which should include representation of PGRs/ECRs), advertise a call for papers, set session timings and all other pre-conference organisation tasks. The Conference will run in mid-late June (date and venue to be announced soon) and there may be funds available to support the organisation of this Conference.
If you are interested in applying in your Faculty or Centre/Institutes (or group of Centres/Institutes) please complete the application form here by 16th December 2022. The chosen organising committee will be announced in early January 2023.
We look forward to hearing from you!
