Exploring Research in Cornwall (ERIC) Postgraduate Conference 2018

On the 21st of March 2018, the fourth Exploring Research in Cornwall (ERIC) Conference will take place at the Environmental and Sustainability Institute (ESI) on Penryn Campus. The Conference celebrates the quality and diversity of postgraduate research across the University of Exeter, and is free to attend for postgraduate students and staff members of any University of Exeter campus.

ERIC will run from 8.45-4pm and feature themed talks from research students and staff. In parallel, the conference’s poster session will see prizes awarded for the best posters in each of our four categories: Cornwall Connections, Changing Worlds, Creative Methods and Understanding Nature.

To register your attendance at the conference, please fill in this online form

We are seeking students and staff to take part in the poster session and to deliver talks throughout the day. If you would like to either display a poster or give a 10 minute talk on your research, please email your abstract to ERIC-conference@exeter.ac.uk and indicate this on the registration form. Please note abstracts should be no longer than 200 words.

The deadline for abstracts and conference registration is the Friday 15th of February.

Speakers and posters will be confirmed shortly after the deadline closes.

When sending in your abstract, please indicate which theme it will fit into best:

Cornwall Connections- Even the small county of Cornwall has its place in the wider world. Are you collecting your data within Cornwall, researching Cornish heritage or collaborating with local organisations? If your research connects Cornwall to the world in any way, we want to hear from you.

Changing Worlds- From climate change to technological advances, our world is changing. This theme explores how and why.

Creative Methods- Are you developing novel techniques or using old methods in new ways? Let us know the creative ways in which you are answering research questions.

Understanding Nature- From animal behaviour to evolutionary genetics, we encourage talks or posters from anyone whose research helps us to understand the natural world.
