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!

2022 EMDoc PGR Conference: Call for abstracts from Postgraduate Researchers

EMDoc consists of nine universities who are keen to work collaboratively to share best practice, resources and insights into doctoral research across all disciplines. The EMDoc Conference is a great opportunity for PGRs to discuss and promote their research as well as network with other researchers from across the East Midlands.

This year’s conference will be hosted online by the University of Lincoln, and will take place on the 21st September. UON PGRs are invited to submit abstracts for the conference (deadline 5th August), on the theme of “Interdisciplinarity and Collaboration”.

Reviewing the UON Research Conference 2022

The annual UON Research conference was held on Tuesday 21st June online on Collaborate and on Wednesday 22nd June on campus in the Town Hall. The hybrid format allowed off-site students and those not able to come onto campus a platform to present and to attend, but still gave those people who wanted to come onto campus the opportunity for a traditional conference format, to meet and network. Over the two days we had 2 keynotes, a brand new (for us!) Pecha Kucha style of presentation, 38 oral presentations from both postgraduate researchers and staff and 4 ‘Roundtable’ sessions.
