This conference was due to take place in April,
it has been rescheduled for 7th & 8th September 2020
After careful monitoring of the development of COVID 19 in the UK and around the world The Executive Committee of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research has decided to postpone this April's conference until the 7th and 8th September 2020.
This has been a difficult decision to make but with over 600 attendees expected for the upcoming conference it is vital that appropriate steps to prioritise your health and safety are taken.
A huge amount of work goes into preparing for The British Conference of Undergraduate Research from contributors, suppliers and staff and so we would like to extend our thanks to everyone and look forward to collaborating with them on the new date.
All existing conference registrations will be automatically transferred to the new conference date. The BCUR 20 organisers will send a further email on Tuesday 17th March 2020 with information on cancelling your registration should you be unable to attend the re-arranged conference.
The organisers will keep communicating with participants as they progress towards our new conference date of 7th and 8th September 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: The BCUR Team in IATL promotes BCUR at Warwick but does not organise it.
The British Conference of Undergraduate Research promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines. The Conference meets annually every spring in a different British university. Undergraduates of all levels are invited to submit papers, posters, workshops and performances to the conference. Abstracts are peer-reviewed and those accepted will be invited to attend the conference. Conference fees are usually paid by the student’s own university. BCUR also accepts submissions from students outside of the UK. The call for papers is usually published in the autumn.
BCUR was founded in 2010 and held its first conference in 2011 at the University of Central Lancashire. The event doubled in size for the second conference, held in 2012 here at Warwick. The 2013 Plymouth conference was bigger still, and the conference has continued to attract an increasing number of attendees and presenters year on year.
Posters in Parliament
Posters in Parliament is the annual sister event of BCUR and brings together a remarkable collection of the best undergraduate research from across the country. Attended by MP's, civil servants and policy makers, as well as academics and fellow BCUR students, the event is an amazing opportunity for our student researchers to discuss their work with such influential people. The 2020 Posters in Parliament was held on Wednesday 11th March 2020 in Westminster, London. Warwick took two students to present their work in poster format, the students were selected from over 100 Warwick students who submitted abstracts to present at BCUR 2020 later in the year.
In 2019, two Warwick students were selected to present their posters. The event, hosted by the University of Sussex, was held on Thursday 7 March 2019 in Portcullis House, London. The Warwick students spoke to fellow undergraduate researchers and academics, as well as Government officials and MP's, including MP's local to the University of Warwick.
