From time to time the Faraday Institute holds academic conferences on specialised topics often in partnership with other academic institutions or departments. These take place at various venues within the University of Cambridge and will typically comprise a combination of invited plenary speakers and short papers selected by means of a Call for Papers.
Call for Papers
The Call for Papers is open to anyone engaged in academic research on the theme of the conference, and the decision of the course organisers is final. Those whose proposal is accepted as a short paper will be responsible for their own travel costs, accommodation and conference fees. PhD students are strongly advised to obtain the approval of their supervisor before submitting a proposal to the Call for Papers.
Short papers may be selected by the course organisers for inclusion in the conference proceedings if these are being published. Published conference proceedings will be made available to delegates at a discounted price.
How to apply
Faraday academic conferences are subsidised for charitable and educational purposes and are generally heavily over-subscribed. You are therefore strongly recommended to apply early. Please note: there are no bursaries available for Faraday academic conferences.
Applications are carried out by a two-stage process:
- Stage 1: involves applying for a conference and securing a place.
- Stage 2: involves payment for the conference (initially by a deposit, or the full conference fee) once a place has been confirmed.
