"Our participation in the International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) was thoroughly rewarding. The interdisciplinary nature of the conference made it all the richer. We came out of the conference enlightened, we made new friends and we had an immensely enjoyable time." (ICUR Participant)
Imagine a conference where students from the UK, Australia, the US, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore and South Africa interact with each other in real-time, without having to leave their home university. The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is an annual event that is unique in concept and design. Using the latest in high-definition video conferencing technology, it connects students from universities across the world to a single 24-hour forum. It is a platform to showcase the work of some of the world’s best undergraduate researchers from any discipline or area. Undergraduates present their research in joint sessions alongside peers on the other side of the world, interacting with fellow presenters and audiences in real-time through video-links and social media.
