The Post Graduate Research Association is holding its annual conference in June 2011. The PGRA conference provides a valuable experience for research students to share and discuss their ideas with an academic audience and we are grateful for your support, and invite your contributions! 

Please email your 200-300 word abstract, or any questions to the organisers of the conference:

This conference is free for everyone, and coffee and a light lunch will be provided on the day.

If you wish to present at the conference, please email your abstract of 200-300 words to the organisers of the conference (Laura and Rob). Please note that presentations should last for 20 minutes, and there will be a 10 minute Q&A session afterwards. Abstracts should include your name, institution, research topic and discipline, email and telephone number.

Please specify whether you will need any particular facilities or requirements.

The deadline for proposals is: Friday 13th May 2011. (Applicant submissions will be reviewed and notified by 20th May 2011). If you wish to attend the conference without presenting, please email the organisers.
