Description

"The seeds of knowledge may be planted in solitude but must be cultivated in public" - Samuel Johnson

PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THOSE WISHING TO PRESENT HAS CLOSED. THOSE WISHING TO REGISTER AS VISITORS MAY STILL DO SO UNTIL THE DAY OF THE CONFERENCE.

The University of Worcester Postgraduate Network is pleased to announce its Annual Postgraduate Conference! Under the theme of Seeds of Knowledge, the conference aims to gather postgraduates from all different disciplines, stages of research, and backgrounds. This is a great opportunity for all postgraduate students to present and discuss their research in front of a supportive audience and to develop and enhance their skills in sharing their work. You’ll also be able to listen to a range of exciting presentations, and learn from your peers about topics that you’ve never come across - plus, it’s FREE!

Date: Thursday 20 June 2019 (8:45am-4:15pm)

Location: The Hive, Sawmill Walk, The Butts, Worcester WR1 3PD

We invite postgraduate research students from all disciplines to submit an abstract for a presentation. Effective dissemination of knowledge is at the heart of good research, and with this in mind, we have various options of presentation formats open to you:

  • A1 poster presentation (viewed during lunch – very friendly!),

  • ‘traditional’ 15-minute presentation (followed by 5-minutes of questions – very useful!),

  • 15-minute ‘carousel’ presentation (presenting your research 3-4 times to small groups around a table – good practice!),

  • 5-minute ‘lightning’ presentation (one presentation slide only and strictly timed to ensure only salient points are discussed – very exciting!).

We would like to encourage people to try presentation styles you think you will be most comfortable with, and that you will have fun doing!

We would like to be inclusive of all disciplines, so if you would like to suggest a different presentation format that is better suited to your discipline, please do so in the submission form.

Deadline for submission of abstract: 6 May 2019

To register or submit abstracts, please buy tickets as a visitor or presenter, respectively. For those wishing to present, you will be asked to complete a form consisting of your details, an abstract, and a bio. You will be emailed to confirm that we have received your submission, and we will get back to you after the May 6th deadline to let you know if your presentation has been accepted. Unfortunately, we can not provide funding or cover travel costs.
