Fifth Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research
An opportunity to network with other undergraduate researchers from your own discipline.
The Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research (ACUR) is inviting you to present your work at the conference by submitting an abstract of no more than 300 words by 15 July.
The abstracts submitted will be peer reviewed and the conference committee will notify you if you have been selected to give a spoken presentation on your paper by 16 August. A total of 20 minutes will be allocated for all presentations and discussion.
ACUR is held each year in different universities on an ongoing basis. This year the conference will take place on 27-28 October 2016 at CQ University Australia, Rockhampton, Queensland. This two-day conference will include spoken presentations by undergraduate students, Master of Research students (first year only) and graduated 2015 Honours students from all disciplines and from across Australasia.
An undergraduate research conference is like any academic conference, except that the presentations are all given by undergraduates who report on research carried out within courses, a summer or other research internship, a research-based degree program, or voluntary work. In 2012 the first Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research was held at Macquarie University. An undergraduate research conference provides a great opportunity to meet students from other universities and to share your research. As a multi-disciplinary conference, you will have the opportunity to network with other undergraduate researchers from your own discipline, and also to learn about how other disciplines approach research problems. In addition to this career enriching experience, a prize of $1000 for the best paper presented at the conference will be awarded.
Last day to submit your abstract is 15 July.
