Welcome to the Seventh Department of Earth Sciences Conference!

Celebrating excellence in our research

The Durham University Department of Earth Sciences Conference will be held on Tuesday 11th June 2019 in TR1-4, Level 2 of the Arthur Holmes Building. We encourage all members of the Department and the Science Faculty to attend and take part. The oral presentations are to be given by the Level 4 students (summative presentation of research projects), but you can submit an abstract for a poster presentation on any aspect of your research, whether it be an undergraduate assignment/dissertation or a presentation given at an academic conference. If you don't have a poster already, why not make one? Great experience for your CV! Also, this year we will be running a three minute thesis competition, open to all. Can you summarise your PhD, undergraduate dissertation, or current research project in a strict time limit of three minutes and one PowerPoint slide?

To attend the day, you must register but conference attendance is free.

Awards will be presented at 16.30 in TR1/2 - make sure you're there!
