Your invitation to support our emerging researchers at our undergraduate research conference

The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is open to everyone in our community in a virtual format, with all presentations being delivered in real-time on 28 and 29 September.

Support our emerging researchers from Monash, Warwick and our global partners

Supported by the Monash Warwick Alliance, your attendance at ICUR cultivates a welcoming and uniquely supportive environment for our emerging undergraduate researchers.

Show your support to our students from Monash University, the Univeristy of Warwick, and our global partner universities who will pitch and communicate their research to international and interdisciplinary audiences over a two-day, 48-hour event. ICUR’s virtual format allows you to join as many panel sessions as you like over the 48 hour conference period, so that you can learn new ideas from students around the world.

Keynote speakers

This year, ICUR will open with keynote speaker Tilman Ruff, a distinguished alumnus from Monash University. Tilman is the co-founder and Australian Chair of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017. He is also the co-president of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War and an honorary principal fellow at the University of Melbourne's School of Population and Global Health.

ICUR will also be hosting our first keynote panel, which will feature inspiring academics from Monash and Warwick. The panel includes:

Priya Sharma, PRME Ambassador at Monash University, Malaysia campus. Priya works in SDG integration in business schools, has been a speaker at UN Global Compact Leaders Summit and is currently researching trafficking of migrant workers.

Dr Michael Tidesley, Director of MathSys CDT at University of Warwick. Dr Tidesley is also a member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Modelling group (SPI-M), the modelling subgroup of SAGE, and is working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic on the development of models to inform a range of policy questions in the UK.

Dr Steve Fuller, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick. Dr Fuller is also a founding member for the research program into  social epistemology, the philosophical study of the relevance of communities to knowledge, and the founder of first journal and book on social epistemology.

Another exciting feature at ICUR this year is the alumni panel featuring past ICUR presenters and student leaders from Monash and the University of Warwick. They’ll share how they translated their skills and experiences gained from ICUR into real- world opportunities, answering questions and passing along tips with a focus on employability.
