Join us in Tokyo for AURS2021!
Saturday, November 27, 2021 | Tokyo, Japan
The 6th Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium (AURS) was meant to be held in 2020 and then COVID-19 intervened. What followed was a year where many, including academics and researchers, felt isolated and as though working in a vacuum. As we begin to emerge from isolation, 2021 is the time to build networks and share with others once more. We are thrilled to announce that this year, AURS will be held on Saturday, November 27 in Tokyo, Japan. This one-day event gives final-year undergraduate students an exciting opportunity to present their research to peers and academics from all over the world, reconnect with the research community, and learn in a supportive environment.
We, the AURS Organising Committee, are reaching out to undergraduate scholars from all fields and disciplines to participate in the 2021 symposium. The day-long event features a range of engaging workshop activities designed to improve presentation skills and techniques for handling Q&A sessions with finesse. The culmination of AURS2021 is a poster presentation during a special session of The Asian Conference on Education (ACE2021), one of the largest international interdisciplinary academic conferences in Asia. All student presenters who register for AURS2021 will also be able to attend ACE2021 as an observer on Sunday, November 28.
AURS2021 is a unique event that allows you to learn the benefits and challenges of presenting at an international conference, to share your experiences, knowledge and ideas with like-minded others, and to gain unique insight from respected experts, professionals and symposium leaders – a valuable experience that will set you apart from other undergraduates. Discover how your participation in AURS2021 can aid you in your future directions.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Tokyo in November!
