ICUR 2018 call for abstracts is now open
the Call for Abstracts for the 6th annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is now open! ICUR is a conference with a difference - held concurrently in Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, South Africa, and the United States – ICUR connects conference presenters from across the world with cutting-edge video-conferencing technology.
ICUR is a fantastic opportunity for students to present and discuss their research and can help them to develop both their research and presentation skills. They also have the opportunity to connect with other undergraduate researchers across countries and disciplines, and enhance their CV.
What our past students have said:
‘ICUR was made brilliant by those that attended. They brought with them humour, energy and enough curiosity to reignite a passion for answering the unanswered questions of our time.’
‘I learned the importance of clear communication in research and enhanced my ability to deliver inspiring presentations on captivating topics.’
Students can apply at www.icurportal.com
The conference is multidisciplinary and all undergraduate students who have research to share are encouraged to apply. Students are invited to submit abstracts of 250 words for either a fifteen minute spoken presentation or a poster presentation. We welcome submissions from all disciplines and perspectives.
HOW TO APPLY
The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday 31st May 2018. If you have any enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstracts will be reviewed against the following criteria:
The ICUR Team will let the student know if your abstract has been selected by the end of June 2018.

The Materials GRP will be supporting up to 5 Undergraduate Research Summer Scholarships (URSS), each with an award of up to £2000.
Thursday July 27th, University of Warwick
This symposium aims at bringing together leading international and UK experts in an unformal and stimulating environment to present recent advances in the field and encourage interdisciplinary discussion and collaborations. Early career researchers will be given the unique opportunity to showcase their research and to directly interact with international experts.
Tuesday 18th July; 11:30am
Ramphal Lecture Theatre, University of Warwick
In 1959 Richard Feynman gave a remarkably prescient and now-famous talk titled "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom" in which he spoke of the possibilities afforded by extreme miniaturization. In that talk he discussed a "great future" in which "we can arrange the atoms the way we want." Thirty years later, in 1989, we had the good fortune to achieve that milestone. Feynman's "great future" was ushered in with the discovery of ways to manipulate individual atoms using a scanning tunneling microscope. My dual goals in this presentation are to relate a story of discovery -- how we learned to manipulate atoms – and to share with you some sense of the excitement, humor and joy we found in the journey.
All welcome, no registration necessary.
The Faculty of Science at the University of Warwick would like to invite you to join us for an Industry Day where the Physical Science Departments (Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and WMG) will showcase the research capability that the Faculty is eager to direct towards the research development and productivity challenges faced by industry.
