World Congress on Undergraduate Research Updates:

World Congress on Undergraduate Research

Welcome to the first ever World Congress on Undergraduate Research to be held in Qatar University, Doha, Qatar on November 13-15, 2016.

Our aim is to bring together the best undergraduate research in the world to focus our collective minds on some of the most significant challenges facing the global community today..

We invite you to be part of this new international movement. We recognise that no academic discipline on its own can meet these challenges; therefore we are bringing together undergraduate researchers from all academic fields to address them together. Through debate and collaboration, we will develop new solutions and a greater understanding of these issues. The World Congress will be a global dialogue across many different fields of enquiry.

Please read through the research themes and determine which ones best fits or aligns with your research. We welcome scientific papers, creative arts pieces, scholarship in science, humanities, and social sciences.

When you submit your abstract you will be asked to indicate the theme that aligns with your research (you will have the option to elect up to two additional themes).
