Department of Earth Sciences conference 7th June 2018

(9 April 2018)

Registration for this year's department conference is now open.

As in previous years the conference will be an excellent opportunity to get to know the range of activities that take place across the department, from the oral presentations of the level 4 students, to the poster presentations of postgraduates and staff. Also for the first time we will be running a three minute thesis competition, open to all. Can you summarise your Phd, undergraduate dissertation, or current research project in a strict time limit of three minutes and one PowerPoint slide?

This year the conference will be held on the 5th June in the department teaching rooms, 0900-1700, with talks and poster sessions throughout the day.

Attendance at the departmental conference is free and includes tea/coffee in the morning, a buffet lunch and drinks in the afternoon. However to attend you will need to register by midnight on the 7th May. Registration and abstract submission can be done by sending an email to

In your email, please tell us if you have any dietary preferences for the lunch (e.g. vegetarian/gluten free etc.) and tell us if you are undergrad (plus level)/pg/postdoc/academic staff.

If you are submitting an abstract then you do not need to register separately. Just mention your status and dietary requirements in your abstract submission email. Details for the abstract formats can be found at the following link:
