On this page, you can register for the 2017 Postgraduate Bioethics Conference (PGBC), to be held 4-5th September at St Catherine’s College, Oxford. Graduate students at Masters or PhD level are eligible to attend. The conference is free – lunch, refreshments, a networking dinner on the evening of Day 1 and one night’s accommodation all provided. Delegates can also apply:
- to give a long oral presentation (15 mins + 5 mins of questions), or
- to give a short oral presentation (up to 5 mins including time for audience questions), and/or
- for a travel bursary (up to £100 for national students or up to £200 for international students).
Please register online using the Google form found at https://goo.gl/forms/tE8UpQEotKOT6n133
Conference places are limited. In the event that conference registration is oversubscribed, priority will be given to those who wish also to give an oral presentation (see below).
The deadline for registration applications is 1 July 2017. We will aim to contact you by 21 July 2017 to confirm whether you have a place.
To apply to give a long or short oral presentation (submit an abstract)
To submit an abstract for either a long or short oral presentation, use the online abstract submission system found here. You will need to create a login to access this system. Abstracts should be in keeping with the Conference Theme (for more information about the Conference Theme, please see the Programme page.) Abstracts should fulfil certain broad criteria (see Criteria for abstracts).
Please note, abstracts received as attachments to emails will not be accepted.
Slots for giving a long oral presentation are limited and are allocated based on the results of the abstract review (reviews are blinded). If you do not obtain a long presentation slot, we will hope to offer you a short (5 minute) slot instead. You may also opt just to give a short (5 minute) oral presentation. These short slots are also limited but we will try to accommodate everyone who wants to present.
The deadline for all abstracts applications is 1 July 2017. We will aim to contact you by 21 July 2017 to confirm whether you have a presentation slot.
To apply for a bursary
A limited number of bursaries to fund travel to the Conference are available. Please apply using the Bursary application form. (Note as part of the application you will be asked to demonstrate that you are exploring other funding opportunities.)
The deadline for all bursary applications is 1 July 2017. We will aim to contact you by 21 July 2017 to confirm whether your application is successful.
