International Undergraduate Research Organizations


Building on the success of the two previous World Congress on Undergraduate Research (Qatar, November 2016 and Oldenburg, Germany, May 2019) events, we are pleased to announce that the 3rd World Congress on Undergraduate Research (WorldCUR) will take place at the University of Warwick from 3-6 April 2023.


The Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research is held each year at a higher education institution in Australia or New Zealand and is open to international students. Information about the next conference may be found at their website.


The British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR). Founded in 2010, the British Conference of Undergraduate Research promotes undergraduate research in all disciplines. BCUR, which held its first conference at the University of Central Lancashire in 2011, meets annually every spring at a different British university. Undergraduates of all levels are invited to submit proposals for papers, posters, workshops, and performances to BCUR. Abstracts are peer reviewed, and those accepted will be invited to attend the conference. Conference fees are usually paid by the student’s own university. BCUR also accepts submissions from students outside of the United Kingdom. The call for papers is usually published in the autumn. 


The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is an annual event that is unique in concept and design. Using the latest in high-definition video conferencing technology, it connects students from universities across the world to a single 24-hour forum. It is a platform to showcase the work of some of the world’s best undergraduate researchers from any discipline or area. Undergraduates present their research in joint sessions alongside peers on the other side of the world, interacting with fellow presenters and audiences in real-time through video-links and social media.
