15th Annual Doctoral Conference (Now postponed until 14-15th June 2021)

Date(s) - 15/06/2020 - 16/06/2020 All Day

University of Liverpool


Due to high concern over the COVID-19 virus, many NARTI events that are scheduled to take place this academic year will now take place in the next academic year. Therefore, have made the decision to postpone the NARTI Annual Conference until the 14-15th June 2021.

All applicants who have submitted their abstracts will be contacted to let them know whether they have secured a conference place by April 21st 2020 as originally agreed. These places will be held for the June 2021 dates unless you get in touch to tell us that you no longer wish to attend.

You will also receive feedback on your submissions by the 21st April and this is to enable you to develop your presentation ready to resubmit at a later date. Given the delay between submission and the conference being held, we are now aiming to allow an opportunity to resubmit further developed extended abstracts in response to feedback early in the New Year (exact dates TBC). This will allow a further round of feedback and development prior to your presentation at the conference.

We appreciate that many of you may have completed your PhDs by June 2021, therefore the Conference will be open to both Doctoral and Early Career Researchers and this will generate a good mix of experience and knowledge. This means that you can still attend if you are no longer a PhD student at this stage.

We will also reschedule events which will be useful for your research so please check the NARTI website regularly for updates.

We will keep in touch with you and if you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to ask.
