Calling all Master’s and PhD students in Bioethics!
The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts for the 2017 Postgraduate Bioethics Conference has been extended to the 15th July 2017.
The 11th Postgraduate Bioethics Conference is hosted by The Ethox Centre, University of Oxford. It will take place on 4-5th September 2017 in St Catherine’s College, Oxford.
The theme this year will be ‘Individuals and Populations’. Through this theme delegates and speakers will explore a range of bioethics questions at the individual level, the population level, and intersecting issues. Although traditionally oriented towards the individual, bioethics is starting to recognise the ethical significance of the population in the context of globalisation, technological advances, and ‘big data’. Populations may be considered at the community, national or global level.
We welcome delegates from diverse disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. bioethics, law, social science, psychiatry, philosophy, and medicine). Delegates should be enrolled on graduate programmes at national or international educational institutions.
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
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.
