This year’s conference theme is “Spotlighting Canadian Contributions to Global Research Excellence” and our keynote speaker will be Elizabeth Palmer, Canadian journalist for CBS Evening news.
We are looking for ATTENDEES as well as 4-5 PRESENTERS, so if you are looking for an opportunity to showcase your research, this is your chance to do so! This conference is open to Canadian graduate students at all UK universities, as well as Canadian early-career researchers who have obtained their PhD within the past two years. Non-Canadian students doing research in a Canada-related field are also welcomed. The conference fee is £35 and includes a superb hot lunch.
