Oral abstracts

We are offering Early Career Researchers (those who do not have a tenured position) the opportunity to give an oral presentation at the Research Conference.

Places will also be available for PhD students to give a short talk at the Early Careers Day.

You can let us know if you are interested in submitting an oral abstract during the conference registration journey. Once the session themes are confirmed we will share a link to the submission portal via email.
