Josephine Butler Research Forum
About the Forum
This year the college is organising a cross-college research forum taking place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April. Every Durham University student at both postgraduate and undergraduate level is invited to participate. It will be a great opportunity for postgraduates of different disciplines to share their work, whilst final-year undergraduate students are particularly welcome to present or prepare a poster from their dissertation or project work.
Call For Papers
The Research Forum is a broad and multi-disciplinary event open to all students from any discipline. There is no set conference topic or theme--please use this opportunity to submit an abstract on any topic drawn from your recent or ongoing research. We welcome single and joint presentations.
The submission requires a title and abstract of the suggested oral presentation (150-250 words) or a title for a proposed poster. Specifically, the participants can choose between 3 options.
Short presentation (15 min presentation followed by 5 minutes questions)
Long presentation (30 minutes presentation followed by 10 minutes questions)
Poster (A1/A0 size) to be presented during coffee breaks.
The submission deadline for titles and abstracts is 31st March. The review results and the presentation times will be announced by 15th April.
Awards will be given for the best presentation in each category at the discretion of the forum organisers.
