Marie Curie Conference (MC2)

Monday 10th April - Wednesday 12th April 2006

Conference delegates are invited to present their research results and work in progress to multidisciplinary audiences consisting of current Marie Curie Fellows, policy makers, industry partners and journalists.

Themes and topics for work presented are entirely open. However, all presenters are asked to structure their presentation such that it can engage researchers and users outside their immediate research area and thus engage with the conference theme of public engagement with science.

As such, submissions are welcome in, but not limited to, the following areas:

In addition to scientific papers, the conference also welcomes papers which explore the nature of research, the research experience and practical issues relating to supporting understanding of science outside the university sector. Presentations which employ innovative methods of presentation or audience involvement are also welcome.

There are two formats for sharing work:

Additionally, there are possibilities for delegates to organise longer, more interactive sessions. Delegate Forums are bottom-up networking meeting organised by delegates to gather together colleagues interested in a particular area of research or practice. These meetings can last up to 90 minutes. Further information on these Forums are available here.

The deadline for submission of abstracts was Monday 20th March 2006.
