All UBEL-funded students are welcome to attend and take part in the conference.

There will be a series of talks and workshops throughout the day, as well as a poster session during the lunch session, and a social and drinks reception at the end of the day based at SOAS. We want this conference to showcase the amazing variety of research being done at UBEL and also give us a chance to get to know each other better across the years, universities, and disciplines.
