NEW! - Our strategic aim is to actively look for the connections in our teaching and research to the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 UN SDGs provide a framework to fundamentally change our world for the better. The goals offer an agenda for all countries to address world-wide challenges of poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity. Students will have an option below to indicate which of the SDGs are best connected to your research or project. We will then provide you with SDG cards that you include with your presentation. You can learn more about the UN SDGs here: .
Abstracts will be collected via electronic submission of your title and abstract, co-authors, mentor, and affiliation.
