- Crossing Paths - Postgraduate Conference 2017
Connecting and constructing across the disciplines
Conference Date: Friday 28th April 2017 11.00am - 4.00pm
**Second call for abstracts**
Deadline: Friday 17th March 2017
Venue: Keele Hall Ballroom
The Institute’s second postgraduate conference, Crossing Paths, will celebrate the range and diversity of postgraduate work in the University and offers a different and alternative opportunity, in addition to those available within the faculties and research institutes.
All postgraduate students are invited to share their work in progress and present their research, dissertation project and course-related posters to a cross disciplinary audience of peers, students and staff. The challenge here is to communicate this in an accessible and inspiring way to an informed, but non-specialist audience.
Participants are expected to present their work as a poster, although artefacts or performance may also be offered and we are inviting abstracts, or poster titles which will be included in the conference handbook.
We hope that as many research and taught students as possible will wish to take an active part in this innovative conference format; they will gain valuable experience of presenting to a wider academic community and in communicating their research to a non-specialist audience. This year we are delighted to be working with JADE to present a special conference journal edition which will include the conference abstracts and papers will be invited from all presenters.

A University Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition will be running this year with a number of competition rounds offered within the Schools and one of these will be taking place at the Institute Postgraduate conference. Winners from each of these competition rounds will be put forward to compete in the Keele Three Minute Thesis Grand Final on June 20th 2017 at Keele Hall.
