Postgraduate research conference

The 4th Annual Postgraduate Research Conference will be held at the Allam Lecture theatre and Derwent Cafe at the University of Hull.

The  conference provides a  platform for our postgraduate students to share their research with a wider audience, as well as a chance to meet other researchers within and beyond their field of study.

  • Call for Abstracts

    Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words should be submitted to by 5pm on Friday 13th February 2015.  

    This year we are changing the format of the conference to include a three minute thesis presentation. Students who submit an abstract will be considered for an oral presentation, a three minute thesis presentation and a poster presentation.

    Your presentation can be counted as a ‘Departmental Poster/Oral Presentation Module’ for your HYMS Postgraduate Training (PGTS). Prizes will be awarded for the best oral presentation, three minute thesis and poster presentation. Travel expenses will be reimbursed for those travelling from York.

    Please see the Call for Abstracts for more information.
