Monash-Warwick International Conference of Undergraduate Research
The conference was a global, 24-hour event featuring a number of sessions delivered concurrently at Monash and Warwick Universities, with presenters linked not just by themes, but also by technology. Research from a broad range of disciplines was presented, via 20-minute oral presentations or posters, by 89 students in 4 continents using video links between Monash Australia, Monash Malaysia, Monash South Africa and Warwick.
The conference offered undergraduate students the opportunity to:
Present their academic research in an exciting, global 24-hour event;
Gain support and training in writing a conference abstract, creating a poster, networking at a conference and creating and delivering an effective presentation;
Gain experience of attending an academic conference;
Write a research paper for the universities’ undergraduate research publication Reinvention;
Travel to the opposite institution to present their research during the conference (three Monash students and three Warwick students were selected to receive a full stipend to fly to the UK and Australia respectively).
