Imagine a conference where students from the UK, US, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore can interact with each other in real-time, without having to leave their home university. The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is an annual event that is unique in concept and design. Using the latest in high-definition video conferencing technology, it connects students from universities across the world to a single 24-hour forum. It is a platform to showcase the work of some of the world's best undergraduate researchers from any discipline or area. Undergraduates present their research in joint sessions alongside peers on the other side of the world, interacting with fellow presenters and audiences in real-time through video-links and social media.
The Monash-Warwick Alliance, a deep strategic partnership formed between The University of Warwick and Monash University, was pleased to present ICUR 2014, held on Tuesday 23rd September in conjunction with our collaborating partner institutions: Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University, the University of Western Australia and Baruch College, CUNY.
