Welcome Note

Professor Philippa Levy
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Learning)

On behalf of The University of Adelaide, I would like to welcome you to the 2017 Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research (ACUR). ACUR is hosted by a different university each year, and this year we are proud to be hosting it in Adelaide, at our prestigious North Terrace campus, located in the heart of the city.

This is the sixth year in which ACUR has run. The Conference continues to thrive as an important and engaging platform for Australasian undergraduate students to showcase their work and network with peers in a friendly and professional atmosphere.

During this year’s conference, there will be 114 research presentations over 2 days and we will hear from keynote speakers, including two former undergraduate students and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) of the Australian National University (ANU), Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington, who is a member of the ACUR Steering Group. There also will be a panel discussion focusing on the trans-disciplinary theme of ‘Global Sustainability’.

We welcome you very warmly to ACUR at Adelaide, for what I know will be a stimulating and exciting event.
