The Graduate School and the Faculties would like to invite you to the first jointly run UoN Research Conference, which will be held from 20th to 21st June 2018.
We have almost 50 oral presentations from postgraduate researchers and staff from across the University over the two days, displaying about 30 research posters and are also holding our second 3-Minute Thesis competition. The four faculties and The Graduate School have got together to plan this 2-day conference, which crosses faculties and disciplines. Please see the conference website for the schedule, and to register your place at the conference on your preferred day (or why not come to both!). The deadline for registration is Friday 15th June so that we can arrange catering. The conference will also be live streamed from here. Read the rest of this entry
Excited to announce that bookings are now open for our bi-annual LLS (Library and Learning Services) conference.
This year’s conference is entitled “Everyone a Researcher”
It will be LLS’s last conference at Park Campus where we hope to say goodbye in style, whilst also looking forward with anticipation, and welcoming in our new beginnings at Waterside.
LLS Conference 2018 will showcase the research undertaken by Library and Learning Services’ staff and demonstrate the inclusive and collaborative nature of the projects completed.
The theme for the LLS Conference 2018 is “Everyone a Researcher” and with this in mind, the conference will incorporate various formats such as traditional research papers, works in progress, a panel session and workshops as well as the now legendary minute madness. These will be delivered by staff members from across all LLS teams!
LLS Conference 2018 also welcomes on board our new Head of Research Support Dawn Hibbert, as well as our new visiting Professor, Professor Susannah Quinsee. We are extremely fortunate to have their additional professional input into our research community here in LLS, and of course, the University of Northampton as a whole.
So please do join us, for what looks to be our best conference yet. Help us to celebrate LLS research, present and future, as we begin to prepare for our Waterside adventure, and boldly go, where no Library and Learning Services department has gone before!

I have been made aware of postgraduate research students being targeted by bogus (fake) conference organisers. Early career academics are asked for payment to attend and/or speak at conferences that do not exist. There are blogs and websites that report bogus conferences such as Scholarly Open Access and Bogus Conferences.
Before you commit to attending a conference, discuss it with your supervisor – part of their role is to help you to plan your development. Also, research the conference organiser, look into any badges of authenticity they display on the website and don’t be lured by conferences that are not organised by known, reputable societies or institutions.
