How to get involved
Undergraduates of all levels are invited to submit papers, posters, workshops and performances to the Conference. Abstracts are peer-reviewed and those accepted will be invited to attend the conference. Conference fees are usually paid by the student’s own university.
BCUR 2020 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The University of Leeds will now host BCUR on the 12th and 13th April 2021.
Submissions for abstracts for the postponed date will re-open in October 2020.
Submit your abstract (abstracts should be no more than 250 words) HERE
The deadline for submission of abstracts will be announced once submissions are opened.
Once abstract submissions have closed, all abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of reviewers. Applicants will either be accepted or given the opportunity to review their abstract for resubmission. All students asked to resubmit will be given specific feedback on areas for improvement. You will be contacted by email with the outcome of your submission.
