APRU Doctoral Students Conference 2015

Posted by on July 23rd, 2015 · 2015, Conference, Scholarship Opportunities, UNSW Summer Break

Host: Zhejiang University

Date: 23 – 27 November, 2015

Theme: “Shaping the Future: Promoting Multicultural Exchange and Technological Cooperation through Asia-Pacific Interconnection”

Launched in 2000, the APRU Doctoral Students Conference (DSC) is one of APRU’s long-running initiatives. At the DSC, participants present their research projects and engage on a range of topics grouped under an annual theme. Using a multidisciplinary approach, participants gain fresh perspectives and innovative ideas from peers from related or different fields of studies. These often give them new ways of addressing some of the most important issues or research questions in their respective fields of studies.

PhD students, postdocs or early career faculty/researchers are invited to submit abstracts for the APRU Doctoral Students Conference (DSC) to be held in Zhejiang University (ZJU), China this November. Abstracts will be evaluated on quality and relevance to the conference theme. Abstract submissions will close 30 July (1st round) and 30 August (2nd round). Submissions made by 30 July will be given priority. Abstracts can be submitted via email (2015aprudsc@zju.edu.cn) until the conference website becomes available.

View further information and the preliminary program here.

For Conference enquiries, please contact the DSC 2015 – ZJU Organizing Committee at 2015aprudsc@zju.edu.cn.

UNSW grants:  UNSW PhD students, postdocs or early career faculty/researchers who submit an abstract are eligible to apply for 1 of 2 $1000 scholarships available. Please apply by emailing your name, student number and abstract title to  advisor4globaled@unsw.edu.au before 31 August.

AIESEC UNSW offers The Global Citizen Program, which provides students with the opportunity to volunteer overseas from a period of 6 to 12 weeks for a challenging learning and cross-cultural experience.

 

Some of you will be embarking on your study exchange in Semester 2 with uni starting in September. Why not spend July to September doing something meaningful and volunteer in a local community overseas?

This is what Ned had to say about his own AIESEC Global Citizen experience in Poland!

 

“There was one time in Poland I was stranded at the station at 1am looking for a place to charge my phone. All of the power points except one which was powering the huge 30m tall Christmas tree right in front of the shopping mall were locked. I was walking around it thinking if I should unplug it and there was a homeless guy who went up to me and said ‘oh just unplug it, no one will notice’. So I pulled out the plug and ALL of the lights on the tree suddenly just went off. So I just sat there in the dark and charged my phone. Then the security guard came up to me and was going to tell me off but I kept saying ‘Prosze! Prosze!’ which means please in polish. After a while he just laughed and left me alone to charge my phone. I’d like to think he let me off because of his polish Christmas spirit!”boyy
